No responses to my job postings...now what?

Finally finished the job postings. Updated job descriptions and even tried a few new recruiting strategies. You pop them on the website. Keep the applications coming, but the mailbox remains empty. Now you may be wondering what did I do wrong, what more can I do to increase my chances of getting job applications. In this blog we share some tips what to do if you are not getting responses to job applications.

'A market-based salary'

Did you know that vacancies with a salary indication get many more applicants than vacancies that do not have a salary indication? Salary is the most important factor for a new job in the Netherlands, about 50% change jobs because of salary. So clearly indicate the salary and for example whether the salary includes or excludes surcharges.

You really have to persuade those doubters

Vacation days, travel expenses and training are these listed in the job description? Not? Write down the most important points! Nothing should be taken for granted. Precisely these types of benefits can make a job more attractive. This could be just the thing to convince a skeptic to apply.

Use soft skills in the job posting

Many job postings are based on hard skills that the ideal candidate must meet. But is this realistic, often not. But turn the tables. What Soft Skills does a candidate need (also)? How learnable is he? Maybe the candidate can learn the requested skills.
