World at Work episode 57 Add Filters to Job Descriptions

“People actually appreciate standards if they’re there for the right reasons or if it makes you unique or stand out.”

Attention to detail matters in job applications. With so many people applying to any and every job, adding filters to job descriptions is a great first step for considering candidates. Incorporating them can enhance the hiring process, attract more qualified candidates, and ultimately find the right fit for your organization.

Filters are a great way to determine if candidates are paying attention to the job posting. Adding questions related to salary expectations, qualifications, and eligibility can help sift through applications and find candidates who are genuinely interested in the position.

Attention to detail is a valuable trait in job applicants. By including questions that are already answered in the job description, employers can gauge how closely candidates have read the posting and their level of enthusiasm for the role.

Applying filters also have a way of enhancing the employer’s brand and attract the right candidates. While it’s important not to create overly burdensome barriers in the application process, incorporating unique filters that align with the company’s values or requirements can actually increase interest and showcase the organization’s distinctiveness.
