The quality of your job posting has a direct impact on how many applicants you will receive. If you need to hire for dozens, hundreds or even thousands of entry-level positions, we’ve got some tips to give your job posting the kick in the pants it needs to attract more top talent.

Over the years at College Recruiter, we’ve heard tons of feedback from our employer customers and other job boards on the effectiveness of a wide variety of job postings. Some postings generate way more views and applications than others, and unfortunately, few employers take full advantage of these tips to stand out to the right entry-level candidates. In this guide, we address your job title, whether to include salary, video, talking about your culture, and more.

For example, the title of your job posting is critical. Candidates very well may know some of the industry jargon, but you have to think like a job seeker. Give your posting a title that will be searched for. Instead of titling it “SD IV,” use the title Software Developer and drop the internal lingo.
