The Complete JD Checklist: A CodeForce 360 Report

Make it visual: In this digital age, candidates are often attracted to posts which have a decent amount of visuals to paint a clear picture of an opportunity so you ought to include lots of images, texts, or testimonials. This shows candidates that your organization works as a brand and not just any other entity seeking profits.
