Use Job Descriptions to Attract Strong Candidates, Craft Attractive Resumes

John Storts

The goal of providing job descriptions in the Knowledge Network is two-fold. The first part of the goal is to provide an example of how contributors such as IT staffing firm G.1440 present details so that other companies looking for IT professionals for similar positions can build job posts that capture the right information. Complete and well-written job postings are more likely to draw solidly qualified candidates than those that don't give a clear picture of what the employer is looking for. No hiring manager wants to waste time or money on interviews that go nowhere.

Signs Your Resume Is 'Old School'

Don't miss out on interview opportunities because of an out-of-date resume.

The second part of the goal is to provide applicants with a way to improve their resumes by running their skills, credentials and experience up against those being sought by employers. This allows applicants to quickly determine if they are qualified for a position or not, and it also helps identify areas where certain skills may be lacking so that additional training, certifications or other experience can be gained to develop into a more attractive prospect.
