I was having a conversation with a client about their job posts and after many months saying theirs sucked… they said “You are right.”
After asking them to repeat that last part (it was a minor victory) we took a tour of some different company web sites and job boards.

We found 5-7 really good ones and 1 that knocked our socks off. The cool part was that the “knocked our socks off” was from someone who attended a session I did on this topic a year ago.
Anyway… while this one is an extreme case of “suck” 98% of what we saw sucked. Just varying degrees.

If after reading the post, would you apply?
