Revisit job postings

Review Job Details

Ensure job postings focus on skills and responsibilities (PDF) , rather than qualifications and requirements, to remove unnecessary barriers to entry and to help job seekers better understand the role.

  • Highlight “responsibilities” instead of “requirements” on job postings by detailing the tasks candidates will encounter on the job or the results they’re expected to achieve.
  • Emphasize training and development opportunities to attract candidates with transferrable skills, or those who lack experience but have potential.

Facts:

  • Job postings that list responsibilities instead of requirements get 14% more applicants per view than those that only list formal requirements
