  • Once youve written a job advertisement that sounds like it was written by a human being and placed it in front of people doing the type of work you need, imagine what a likely candidate is to do when first seeing the ad.
  • Needing to create an account, fill out a long application, or take a test are all choke points where not only will you lose a lot of potential applicants, but you will never even know they came to your site in the first place interested in the job.
  • Seriously consider making it easy for potential employees to upload a resume and invite them to even if the type of job they want with your company is not listed.
  • Letting people apply with LinkedIn and logins from major job boards, will increase your applicant pool.
