This public service announcement-style video encourages applicants and employees with disabilities to voluntarily self-identify by explaining the key role that self-identification plays in measuring contractors’ progress toward achieving equal employment opportunity for people with disabilities. The video also explains the Section 503 requirement that contractors invite voluntary self-identification from their applicants and employees, and the strictly confidential nature of any disability information provided.
There are many ways employers can improve their job postings web page, but HR professionals agree: recruitment videos are a must. But videos don’t just optimize a job posting, they can also be an impactful part of the interview process itself. For any organization looking to attract more applicants and higher-caliber candidates, videos play an integral role.
Drawing attention to your job postings requires the right kind of advertisement. There are a few ways to go about that advertising, but let’s be clear—it’s necessary if you hope to draw talented candidates to your organization. One way or another, during the recruitment process, you need your job postings to reach the right audience. Much of advertisement is about bringing that news to potential applicants, but you can also accomplish that task by drawing them to you.
An optimized job postings website will attract the top talent, but you have to keep them interested. A jobs page that’s lacking compelling content doesn’t encourage prospective employees to apply. Therefore, advertising your job page is a two-step process: Bring the best candidates to your page and then wow them with what’s there.
