Want to increase your job post engagement with candidates from diverse backgrounds? Sure, but how? First, we have to change the way we've always done things. Job post strategies haven't changed in the last 100+ years, leaving us with 100-year-old biases.
This hands-on presentation will provide examples of why many job postings fall flat, particularly regarding inclusion, and four ways recruiters can refresh this content with inclusion in mind. You'll walk away with tactics to increase qualified candidate engagement by as much as 300%, and you'll reach many more qualified candidates from diverse backgrounds.
During this meeting, the speaker will help us:
Break the trends with better tactics for talking about skills and education in your job postings
Avoid creating psychological barriers that send candidates from diverse backgrounds running away
Recognize what works and what doesn't about your current job posts
Hone your writing to improve response rates, including from those hard-to-find candidates and passive job seekers from diverse backgrounds
