Say Who’s in Charge

That’s what it feels like to candidates when a job’s reporting structure is unclear or unknown. Many employers make the mistake of not determining who will be supervising the new hire and many more, neglect to post that supervisor’s title on the job announcement. This lack of clarity is off-putting to candidates — especially experienced ones who can sniff out confusion or turmoil from far away. To attract and invite as many candidates to apply, take the time to make these decisions upfront. By being intentional in your job announcement, you produce a higher chance of receiving a diverse applicant pool that will be eager to learn about your opportunity.
