Proof read your job ads

Posted By: Thomas Shaw, 3:40pm Tuesday 17 March 2009    Print Article

Have a look at this job advert posted on Seek yesterday. Are recruiters using the spellchecker or proof reading the job adverts? It's quite easy to spot all the errors.

This isn't just about proof reading, it's an issue of basic literacy. This person clearly doesn't have the level of knowledge required to write job ads (or anything else I imagine), and needs to be performance managed. It's amazing how many people, from graduates to more senior roles, need basic training on grammar and writing. Not just in recruitment, but across all industries. Not to be perfect, just to be adequate and avoid embarassment!
