How to write a job advert

A good job advert can make all the difference. Make sure you include all the information that will attract the best and most relevant candidates.

What you write in your job advert is important. The information you choose to share can be a decisive factor in your hunt for the best possible candidate.

Therefore, you should describe the job opening in as precise terms as possible and know that everything from the type of employment, work hours and salary, to help finding a place to live, matters to the job seekers.
