You just posted your opportunity on our Job Listings, but more openings are posted every day, so how do you draw attention to yours?

In addition to taking these eight steps to fine-tune your job post, here are four simple steps that any organization can take, which we see result in an increase in the traffic to the organization’s openings posted on Jobs That Help:

  1. Post about your job post on Jobs That Help on your organization’s social media accounts (with Facebook, due to new algorithms, making multiple posts while the job is open is helpful, as each post will only be displayed in a fraction of the news feeds of the followers of a Facebook page), asking followers to share the job post in their circles.
  1. Send an e-mail out to your organization’s e-mail list subscribers or include a notice in your newsletter about your job post (and ask subscribers to share the news about the job opening in their circles).
  1. Ask supportive local organizations that may have a helpful reach (such as the local United Way, chamber of commerce, relevant college program, professional association or network, relevant LinkedIn or Facebook group, etc.) if they would share your job post on their social media or with their e-mail list subscribers (we also utilize such connections to publicize your job posts in this way!).
  1. Add a note on your website that your job openings can also be found on Jobs That Help with a link to us (providing a link to us has the extra benefit of indicating to search engines that Jobs That Help should be listed higher in search results for job openings like yours, helping job seekers find your openings more easily). In fact, this is so helpful, we encourage you to contact us to let us know if you have done this, so that we can send a thank you your way!
