Last week Jennifer Anne King, Software Advice HR Analyst, wrote a blog post about “Six Ways to Sell a Millennial With Your Job Description.”

Here’s a short excerpt from her post:

6 key messages to attract Gen Y

In her blog post, Jennifer writes about six ways employers should tweak job descriptions to attract talented Gen Y,  by telling them:

  • Why they should want to work for you.
  • Why the position matters to the company.
  • About what the job could do for them.
  • About your creative benefits.
  • About your vision for the position.
  • Your company story, quickly.
