How To Recruit More IT Professionals

Modern recruiting and SEO

SEO is an important point in recruiting today that you should definitely have on your agenda. Currently, there is an active search for jobs taking place in search engines including Google, as well as job search engines and job boards. There are a variety of different terms used to search for each job. You should be aware of the relevance of different keywords, on the findability of your job advertisements and the ranking of your ads. It should be clear to you that different keywording also leads to different results in the search.

Using SEO to create a job advertisement

Search engines work according to simple factors that determine the rankings. Active seeking candidates are the easiest to recruit. However, if you use an incorrect job title for a job posting, you will not receive any job applications. Using the wrong job title means that your target group either doesn't know or isn't looking for that specific job title. Even the best communication, the simplest processes and the most attractive company can't help you in this situation.

Before creating each job advertisement, you should ask yourself what the relevant keywords are for your target group. If you are looking for Keyword A, what would the target group be looking for? It's also a good idea to advertise multiple ads with different keywords or job titles to get more reach in your audience.
