Many times when interviewing potential candidates, you can quickly determine whether or not they will fit within the role and company culture. The problem is, getting to the point of an in person interview takes time weeding through multiple applications and time = money. Is there a way for candidates to conclude on their own if they would fit within the role?
The short answer: Yes, there is. How you ask? By updating your career website with richer content.
If your current career site is simply a short job description and an application, this could end up costing you more money (and time) by forcing you to interview large numbers of candidates who just don’t fit. Even worse, you find someone who you think will be a good fit but after a few weeks the position was not what they were expecting and they leave.
Updating your career website can help lessen the occurrence of both of these scenarios. Providing more information upfront will allow potential applicants to self-select out of the process, which will save you time and money in the long run. Here are a few examples of the information to provide for applicants to determine their fit ahead of time:
By providing potential applicants with a deeper understanding of the position itself and the environment they’ll be working in, the applicants who do apply are more likely to be a good fit.
