When you have a job site that you feel isn’t really working out for you, perhaps it’s because your content isn’t engaging and persuasive enough. Remember, when potential recruits visit your job site, your site must have the ability to immediately capture the visitor’s attention and keep him hooked on your page.
You can’t achieve this by writing lengthy, text-heavy page content. It’s most likely that your site’s visitors will merely skim through content, and you should be able to draw them in and keep them interested. Here are 4 extremely simple steps on keeping your job-site engaging and persuasive so you get more spikes in your recruitment meters. Let’s get started!
#1: Include Workplace Pictures
This is fairly obvious but underutilized tactic. It’s much easier to capture peoples’ attention when you present them with fun and lively visual images rather than boring lengthy texts. Try posting pictures of the workplace, employees working on their jobs, and company gatherings to give your potential recruits a look into the culture of your working environment.
Be as creative as you can with your visuals! Check out the job site example below, and you’ll automatically notice the interesting and intriguing photos on their page.
#2: Include Videos
What’s next after pictures? Of course, the next best thing: Videos. Video presentations embedded on your job site gives you the opportunity to convey messages to your potential recruits that a simple picture merely cannot.
Try showing off some personality, culture, art and creativity in your video presentations. These serve as the first impressions of your company. You better make it count. For reference, you can see how it is utilized in the job-site, in the example below:

See below example to take a few pointers:

Including announcements/banners about the acknowledgements and employer awards that your company has garnered over its history will give off an air of credibility to your potential recruits.
