Your Jobs are Dynamic, Your Postings are Lame 


Job postings are a necessity in order to find the right person for the job, but are we attracting the right talent and are we doing it in a way that helps sell the story of the brand and culture of our companies? Join us to learn more from Abby Cheesman, workplace storyteller, ethnographic researcher and IO Psychologist, and Co-Founder of Skill Scout, as she speaks on this topic.

  1. Identify key components to creating visual job descriptions, and how they perform compared to text-based postings.
  2. Learn how to incorporate photos and videos into recruiting to attract talent and build your employer brand.
  3. Learn a basic framework, materials and plan for attendees to incorporate learnings into their own talent acquisition strategy, beginning with no or low-cost.
  4. Identify strategies to use storytelling as a way to engage your workforce, share company culture and attract talent.
