  1. 1. CAREER WEBSITES: Companies that put up their own career websites are recruiting proactively, thereby increasing their chances of finding suitable employees. In an iLogos survey for Fortune 500 companies, 83% of respondents reported posting jobs either to their career website or a job opportunity section on their corporate site, representing an increase of almost 11 percent from two years prior.
  2. 2.

Here are some factors to incorporate: Make job listings easily accessible. Keep postings current. Avoid slow-to-load images. Don’t get carried with the latest bells and

  7. 7. Website Upkeep:  Once established, maintaining a career website is crucial. Job listings should be current. Few things prove more irritating for applicants than sorting through old listings and dated information.  Also, keep up-to-date with regard to new design elements, including colours and backgrounds, and effects, such as flash demos. And to keep from appearing complacent, give the site a face-lift every six months or so.
