Is it any wonder that most people believe their employers think of them as being disposable and “just another body.”

Have you thought of at least pretending that people might be interested in the job they would be performing and a few nuggets of information about your organization that might get them excited about working for your firm?

I don’t mean the usual nonsense of it being “a dynamic organization” or a job with “high visibility” when none really exists.

Tell people the truth about your firm. Tell them you are a $400 million firm that has been experiencing explosive growth with your product or that your company does $45 billion annually and projects top line growth of 7% for this year. These days, people get are excited when they believe they will be working for a survivor, let alone a winner!

Talk about the job . . .describe the manager as someone who is leading a group of 7 and needs one additional person. Speak of mentoring possibilities, opportunities to learn new technology and, please stop with the laundry list of job requirements and be honest with which are really required and which would be a plus.

And, see if you can actually make your ad fun and use video, a Facebook fan page, Twitter and LinkedIn to promote your opportunity!
