The Career Page – Candidate Experience to the MAX!

As the need for new employees increases, the pressure on the company’s own career page suddenly becomes huge. But how can the career page be optimised successfully?

Writing a couple of new texts, exchanging a few pictures and hoping that the right employees will come around eventually is like putting on a new costume in figure skating because the double Rittberger does not work properly: it is not completely out of scope, but it is way too short-sighted! When the career page has been updated – but the success is missing after all – you will know.

But what can you do instead?

The career page stands quite on its own in many companies and is rather detached from the overall context. This is a pity, because ideally it should be softly embedded in the middle of a complete ecosystem, providing potential new employees with a coherent overall experience.

We recently invited to the first LAURITZ SOLUTIONS LEARN@LUNCH in our office to share a few free hacks for recruitment. Around a dozen interested company representatives from our co-working space Factory Campus in Dusseldorf attended – and we are already looking forward to the next event when we talk about “Career Sites – Candidate Experience to the MAX”.

# Hack 1: Create free Company Profiles

An own career page should be maintained by every company – so far so good. But what about the presentation of the company outside of its own website?
