How to Write a Good Job Description

Tips and Tricks to Writing a great Job advert

There are a lot of people who are looking for jobs. When posting a job, you want to take the time to write an engaging and clear job description that will make it easy for potential candidates to understand the position. There is a lot more to writing a good job ad than just writing about the position. To help you write better ads, here are some tips and tricks to follow when creating your next job listing.

Understand the importance of a job description

One of the most crucial parts of the job advertisement is the job description. It's important that your ad attracts candidates with the skills you need, but also attracts people who are interested in what your company does. Your job description should be detailed and specific about what needs to be done for this particular position. If it's a customer service position, for example, you would want to detail how you want them to handle customer complaints or requests. You want this information to be on the top of their mind when they read through your ad.

Write an engaging outline for your job ad

Start by building the outline of what you want to talk about. This includes where the job is located, what type of position it is, and then you can go into more detail about the ideal candidate's responsibilities.

Your job ad should have an introduction that is clear and concise, with a few important details to say. You then want to dive deeper into the responsibilities for this position by identifying the skills needed for this job as well as any qualifications required - generally in order of importance.

Next, you want to be sure that you are answering any questions potential applicants might ask in regards to salary, hours, benefits and other information they are interested in in as much detail as you can - this will cut down on administration of irrelevant applicants.

Finally, be sure to include a closing statement that will leave them with a positive feeling about your recruitment agency as well as provide any additional contact information if necessary.

What to include in your job listing

When writing a job advertisement, it's important to include the following:

  • A descriptive and informative job title
  • A brief overview of the position and what is expected
  • The qualifications required for the position (i.e., education, experience, skills)
  • The duration of the job (if applicable)
  • Benefits and compensation offered for the position (i.e., salary, benefits, raises)

The most important parts of your job posting

The key to writing a good job ad is knowing what are the most important parts. There are a few key points that you need to include in your listing that will make it more attractive to potential candidates.

  • Your clients vision for the company, its goals etc
  • The work environment and how it compares to similar companies
  • What does the company do and who does it reach
  • What skills are needed for this position
  • What benefits the candidate will receive by working for the company
