Using a job ad template
Alongside your career page, job advertisements represent the first important point of contact between you and your applicants. The decision to apply to your company depends on those two main factors.

First, research the most common name for your job offer. The title should be formulated precisely in order to generate a good search engine optimization. This is the only way to reach your desired target group.
3. Description of the job's tasks
The description of the tasks should be short and easy to understand. Pay attention to the areas of responsibility and the employment relationship. In addition to the city, enter the postal code and the state.
The professional and personal requirements of the applicant must be presented accurately and clearly.
5. Company description & employer benefits
Present your company in a separate place of the advertisement and highlight the reasons why you are an attractive employer. The best way to do this is to take a look at your candidate persona.
6. Application procedure
Describe the application process to the applicant and inform him or her of the desired file format.
7. Contact person
A personal contact person with contact data should not be forgotten.
8. "Apply now" button
This button should be clearly visible. It should be connected to a Call-to-Action!
9. Tools for a comprehensive employer presence
