Mitch Sullivan, creator of Copywriting For Recruiters, talks to me about the importance of selling your job if you want to attract the right candidates. “Job adverts have an audience of one”, says Mitch. “Why should a successful candidate who has no need to move, leave a job they are successful and happy in to join your business?”
If you make your advert like everyone else’s, and you focus on you, your company and what you think is important, you might attract applicants but you will find the experience disappointing. Recruiting well is every managers’ number 1 responsibility.
