This job ad template is used by a Hiring Manager, a Hiring Manager's delegate, or HR to create a unique job posting. This template is not right for every company or every position.  It's right for companies who are a little edgier, cheekier, & bolder and it's right for positions that tend to be on the creative side.  If you're creating a job posting for a marketer or graphic designer, this style of ad may be just the thing to have your posting stand out from the crowd. 

You want your job ad to grab people’s attention. But not just anyone’s attention. You’re looking for smart, creative industry experts to see your ad and feel the urge to immediately apply. Setting a little challenge can trigger the competitive streak in them and act as a call to action. Or use industry terminology or inside jokes to communicate to candidates.

When it is as difficult as it is to find candidates with specific skill sets, making an impact can set your company apart from the rest. This is also a way to find employees that fit your culture – it’s always nice to find someone who gets your jokes.

ConnectsUs provides 3 flavors of job posting templates:

How the Job Ad - Creative is used

This template is used to signal to applicants that your company is different than others and that you challenge traditional approaches.  It will help applicants self-eliminate their application when they quickly realize that your company culture is not a fit for them. 

Why use a Job Ad Template

If hiring managers and their delegates create job ads using a consistent, approved template, it ensures your job postings are:

  • Compliant with employment legislation
  • Not discriminatory
  • True to your company brand
  • Aligned with other information on your website career pages and previous job postings
  • Properly structured and/or formatted, and easy to read

What you risk by not using a job ad template

If you don't use a standard job ad template, you may risk:

  • Producing a non-compliant or discriminatory job adthat  could open your company up to litigation
  • Misrepresentation of the open position or benefits
  • Producing a mediocre job posting, which will attract mediocre people
  • Compromising your brand as an employer
