Top Ways to Get Started with Recruitment Marketing THIS WEEK 

🔲 Check to see if your job postings show up in a job board during a Google search.  

🔲 Put yourself in the shoes of a candidate by filling out an online application — then go through the process on mobile.

🔲 Read reviews of your company on Glassdoor and respond to any outstanding comments. 

🔲 Make a list of employees you believe have a compelling story that could be recorded for testimonials.  

Top Ways to Get Started with Recruitment Marketing THIS MONTH  

🔲 Interview 1-3 top performers in your company to build or refresh your personas. Then, you can start building personalized content targeted to them across your career site.

🔲 Re-visit your job descriptions and refresh them to ensure they’re clear, persuasive, and align with your employer brand. 

🔲 If no one has been assigned to regularly review and respond to comments made on public-facing review sites, like Glassdoor, assign that task to a team member and develop an ongoing strategy. 

🔲 Record testimonials from a few employees (or empower them to record it from their homes), and post them across your career site and social networks.
