use performance data
to determine who your top
employees are.
Find out more about
what sets them apart
from the pack.

Make them as detailed and
realistic as possible.
Step 2
Know your target
audience

feels conversational,
not robotic

external brand
Step 5

at industry events

where culture is crucial

● Focusing on culture is a differentiator
Celebrate your culture

your hiring process
● Making it clear up front
what your hiring process
is like can save
headaches later
