Every one of these gadgets has diverse screen sizes, stage and direction. We use PCs/laptops in workplaces, mobiles while travelling, so a site should be perfect on every one of these stages. This similarity of the site on a wide range of screen sizes and orientation is called Responsive website design.
- Career page-A career page is pre-requisite for a website to be turned into a recruiting tool. A career page provides the details of the jobs being provided, vacancy in the organisation and other hiring-related details. There are times when career pages are quite difficult to find so this should not happen. You can also try to rank career page using SEO. A career page should be highlighted to improve the quality of professionals in your organisation.
- Keep updating- Updating about new jobs, vacancies, hiring process or any other change related to recruitment is very important for an organisation to recruit professionals that are best suited for your website. Just like an E-commerce website updates about their new products, similarly one must keep updating about new profiles and changes.
- Let your employees tell their stories- Employee testimonials are very important. Reason being that it creates a sense of trust among the professionals applying for a job in a particular company. Testimonials or experience sharing by employees have a positive impact on new entrants in the organisation.
- Allow attaching cover letters- It’s surprising how some companies don’t allow attaching cover letters. They provide for application and resumes but not for a cover letter, but cover letters are so important for the hiring process. It tells a lot about the personality and attitude of a candidate, how serious a candidate is for the interview and how much he knows about the company and industry.
- Social Media Marketing- The reach of social media is unimaginable. One share and it reaches millions of people especially on a professional website like LinkedIn. To attract more and number of applicants, this is a great option. With fresher’s to experienced recruiters, everyone is on social media. 24/7 access and quicker notification are what makes it most recommendable.
