Best Practices for Job Postings

An effective job posting should accomplish the following five things:

  1. Provides insight into your practice.
    This information will help an applicant know if he/she is a professional and cultural fit.
  2. Provides detailed duties and responsibilities for the open position.  
    This sets your expectations upfront.
  3. States the education and experience that your practice is seeking for this opening.  
    This will help applicants determine if they are qualified to apply for this position.
  4. Gets applicants excited to work for you!  
    Feel free to share any other details that might be desirable to potential employees including compensation, benefits, or other things that help foster a positive and productive work environment.
  5. Informs applicants how to apply for your position.  
    Provide specific instructions about what applicants should submit (i.e. cover letter and resume), and how they should get that information to you.
