List skills, education, credentials and years of experience required to perform the job successfully. Be clear about which attributes are mandatory vs. preferred. You might also want to note that candidates who do not meet the minimum qualifications need not apply. State the position type (full time, part time or contract).

A well-written job post helps you attract not only good candidates, but the right candidates. You want to sell your company and this position. If you’re specific about the skills you’re looking for, it helps job seekers know whether to apply. That can save you time by weeding out unqualified candidates.

We asked for advice from the folks at IT job sites Dice.com and TheLadders.com, a site for executive jobs, to help hiring managers write better job descriptions. They outlined these key components to attract the response you want from a job posting and to hire talent to help your company succeed.
