“Anatomy of a Job Description” Infographic

We polled our team of 80+ recruiters and asked them, “What are job candidates looking for when they read a job description?” We picked the four most prevalent topics, paired each one with a notable quote from a recruiter, and backed up our claims with current stats from a variety of trusted industry sources.

The best part? We put it all together with key points of emphasis in a nifty little infographic we’re calling Anatomy of a Job Description.

Could you use a hand writing high-quality job descriptions? This piece of content is for you, and it’s only available in our Recruiters’ Tool Chest.


Something special for the startup community

You didn’t think we’d forget about our friends in the entrepreneurial ecosystem, did you? Heck no. That’s why we sat down with Tom Hausler, the Talent Manager at Viaduct, a talent acquisition company that specializes in finding talent for emerging businesses.

Viaduct, which operates alongside Acara as an Aleron company, works with entrepreneurs to identify new job candidates, assess their compatibilities, and manage their onboarding every step of the way. In fact, that’s pretty much what Tom’s job is, so we asked him what sort of recruitment tools he uses to engage job seekers for startups and small businesses.

Again, LinkedIn came out as a clear-cut favorite. But Tom also talked a lot about the importance of networking, specifically as it relates to word-of-mouth references.

We learned a lot from Tom, and so can you when you read his interview in our Recruiters’ Tool Chest.
