π« Tip #1: Avoid the temptation to copy and paste JDs from your peers. You’re in competition with them too.
π§ Tip #2: Be as descriptive as HR and legal will allow on work-life balance so candidates can opt out early.
π‘ Tip #3: Overindex on candidate clarity instead of hiding info from competitors who may be scraping the job posting.
π·ββοΈ Tip #4: Present a process-centric responsibilities section for task worker roles.
π Tip #5: Present a metric-specific responsibilities section for knowledge worker roles.
β Tip #6: Present company values as non-negotiables so candidates can opt out early.
π Tip #7: Refresh your team section every quarter. Things evolve.
