Traditional Job Descriptions Don’t Attract Top Talent

Traditional Job Descriptions Don’t Attract Top Talent | Gamification, employer brand and IT recruitment | Scoop.it

Over the last 20 plus years of recruiting, we have reviewed hundreds of job descriptions from a wide variety of companies and for a wide variety of positions. The vast majority of these job descriptions have the same format. They list the responsibilities, duties and experience required. It is a one size-fits-all, generic job description. Traditional job descriptions are useful documents that meet legal requirements, but they should not be used for hiring purposes.

CodinGame Pro's insight:

This is all the more true in the IT sector where supply exceeds demand and where recruiters have to set up innovative employer brand strategies to stand out in the competition.

"Don’t just play on your phone, program it,” said President Obama in a new promotional video aimed to get students to spend an hour writing computer code.

A non-profit group called code.org enlisted Obama and more than a dozen celebrities—including pop singer Shakira, actor Ashton Kutcher, and NBA star Dwight Howard—to convince kids that it’s cool to take a computer science class. Apple stores in Boston and elsewhere offered free coding workshops on Wednesday to promote the effort.

The Top 25 Recruiting Trends, Problems, and Opportunities for 2014, Part 1 of 2 | Gamification, employer brand and IT recruitment | Scoop.it

Even if you work in a corporate recruiting function with low resources or minimal expectations for change, every recruiter still has a professional obligation to maintain their awareness of the latest trends and predictions. I have grouped 25 predictions of the leading corporate recruiting trends for 2014 into four separate sections. Part 1 includes two sections that cover 14 new opportunities and continuing current trends. Part 2 (to be published next week) includes the final two sections, which cover 11 remaining trends that cover new challenges and areas that will continue to diminish in importance.
