A job offer is the first contact between your company and a new potential employee and is a reflection of your company's image; we therefore recommend that you take your time to define and write the offer before publishing it.
Before writing the offer, it is important that you have a good understanding of the requirements of the position and the profile of the candidate you are looking for.
We have put together a few useful tips to help you create a good first impression and reach out to candidates that have the right profile for the position.
- Include a specific job title in the offer
Avoid using generic job titles. The title should describe in a few words the position you are offering. Make sure that it is a single profile and that you are not listing several positions under the same title.
- Organize the information into sections
"About us", "Who we are looking for", "What we offer", etc. Dividing the information into sections will help you include all the necessary details and make the offer more attractive to candidates.
- About us - Add a brief description of the company
You should introduce the company to the candidates by describing who you are and what you do. Make sure you highlight any significant aspects of the company in this section.
- The ideal candidate - Outline in detail the type of profile that you're looking for
Here, you must describe the requirements and skills that a candidate must have to join your company in this position. Remember to specify the years of experience that the candidate must have in this role as well as the most important competencies that you are looking for.
It's almost important to indicate if the candidate has to be fluent in a certain language or master any specific software.
- Responsibilities and duties of the position
Detail the functions that the candidate will perform on a day-to-day basis. Be clear and precise and make sure that the job description corresponds to a specific professional profile.
Please note that we do not publish offers in which we consider that several positions and/or requirements of several positions are requested to be filled at the same time.
- What your company offers
In this section, you can specify the type of working day, working hours, salary and any other benefits that may be offered to the candidate such as language classes for employees, health insurance, yearly bonus, internal promotion possibilities, etc.
Writing a good job offer is all about giving as much information as possible in the clearest and most effective way to help you find the perfect fit for your company.
We wish you the best of luck with your search!
