Why should people want to work at your company?
Unless you work for a corporate megagiant, most people reading your job description will know zero about who you are and what your company does.
How do you tell them in a way that’s concise and engaging? We’ve developed two methods that consistently work. Experiment with both and pick the one that suits your style.
- What industry you are in and what your company / product does
- What your work environment is like (closed office, cubicles, open floor plan, nerf balls flying around, library-like silence, etc.)
- Your mission / what your company is trying to accomplish
- Some relevant statistics about your success and/or market position
- How big you are (number of employees, revenue, years in business, etc)
- Key aspects of your culture and values
- Bios of veteran leadership
