is doing. The questions below are exactly as I set them up on my LinkedIn polls.
BACKGROUND - The web design company we are using planning to move the "Careers" link. On the old site, it is on the home page, top level. In the new site, at the moment, the web company is planning to place it, not on the home page.
Here is the exact quote, from the web design company, when I asked them to leave the "Careers" link on the home page ....."Across the web, job seekers are a special class of visitor. They're highly motivated and never have issues finding jobs under the standard "About" location. Unlike customers, they don't reduce conversion with more clicks. That being said, we do recommend adding under the "Find" quick links menu...."
PLEASE, at the very least reply with your choice. If possible, feel free to add any comments. In my opinion, this is an important topic and I believe this group is one of he best to offer valuable info about this topic, as we all live in this space.
Thanks you all in advance for participating.
POLL QUESTION - Where should the "Careers" link, be placed on the website?
#1 - On the Home Page, top level, with the other top-level links
#2 - Home page, @ bottom, with footer links
#3 - Somewhere other than the Home Page…
brand is (should be) based on the culture of the organization. And you are right, it is what it is like to work there. Candidates want to KNOW what they are getting into - even if it is just to pay the mortgage. Candidates don't want to work for a company that sucks, and organizations that don't bother to message (brand) what it is like to work there are not as likely to attract top talent than companies that explain what the work experience (culture) is like. My contention with ignoring the careers link positioning, or the Career landing page the link takes you to is that it is an indication of how the company embraces their employees. Sticking a career link on the very bottom of the home page in six point font says to me they don't much care if you apply or not. Moving a link to the top of the page, where it is easy to find, easy to engage and learn more about the employment experience is a statement.
Jerry Albright said:@Maren - This is a stretch. Maybe it is so awesome to work there - they get so many referrals from current employers they simply do not need a jobs link? Could be they don't want to deal with hundreds of people applying every day when they have no openings? Perhaps they have the world's greatest internal recruiting team and they'd rather not be bothered by anyone outside their target zone?
What I'm saying is "who knows?" Certainly not us. Making ANY correlation to "employment brand" from a lack of jobs link on their page is in no way merited.
P.S. There is no such thing..........
the point home - the audio you have posted is inaudible. Craig Fisher deserves better than that. WE deserve better than that if we take time away from our clients, candidates, offers, IRS converstations et al to follow a link in "hopes" of hearing more about recruiting on Twitter.
People - will you follow THIS LINK and let me know how it sounds to you? It is the link from the original post above. The post Animal wants on the "main" page.
As to Sumser - the man is a genious. What's wrong with saying so?
Recruiting Animal said:You're sucking up to Sumser now? What gives?Jerry Jerry Albright said: ... front page? Not yet son. "That stuff" needs to be perfect. Like Sumser for example. Flawless. He captures my exact feeling on the whole "talent" subject. I mean - it's perfect. No crappy links. No junk audio. Perfection.
n editor. The job requires about a year. Aquick read reflects that the job will be picking sites for photo shoots, getting the permits etc. etc. They also have a link for intern positions if she has just finished school.
All of the mags, ad agencies, modeling agencies and many of the other publications have fashion sections. Going direct to the career page and getting her resume submitted is a good place for her to start.
onsideration with the world in which you travel.
In the Cloud marketing model the web is the platform and blogs are an SEO optimization and link back to the central source. Think of your blog as a trail of bread crumbs for others to find a way to your home. Each post a tasty morsel of enticement.
