Using online job boards has become common practice for many organizations. While most are very user friendly, are things being missed or services that could be included that enhance the value and quality of responses received? This brief session will focus on how to get the most out of your online job posting experience. The presenter will share what questions you should ask of the job board service providers you use; research on what types of online recruitment work best; what beneficial add-on services some career site companies are offering to enhance the experience; internal branding of careers; and tips for attracting top talent to listings online. Peter Weddle, Executive Director of International Association of Employment Web Sites, and members of AgCareers.com will share practical examples of what clients are doing well and not so well, and tips on how all organizations using online recruitment strategies can find success. This session is not to be commercial for AgCareers.com, but rather a resource on how to better utilize AgCareers.com as well as other online resources available.
Note: This session will not spend much time on the details on utilizing social media for recruitment – Check out April’s webinar, ‘Integrating Social Media into Your Recruitment Strategy’ to learn more about this topic!
