If your HR Department is like mine, you’re juggling everything from applicant sourcing to COBRA administration and all points in between.
So when you write a job posting that effectively describes the role and responsibilities, you feel like you’ve hit the jackpot and found the Holy Grail! And you use that same post and verbiage over and over … and over and over … and over and over.
And once more again for good measure.
Over time, however, even the best of job postings get stale. And if you keep doing the old copy/paste of the same verbiage over and over, you’re eventually going to see a dip in both the quality and quantity of applicants for your positions. Why?
Don’t cause open jobs to linger longer and hurt your talent pool by using stale job postings. If you’re not yielding the applicants that you want and need, it’s probably time to update that old faithful job posting with some fresh new wording.
