Around 75% of all job postings describe the job as “fantastic” or an “exciting opportunity”.
Curiously, only about 10% of all job postings tell the reader why the job is fantastic or exciting.
The missing 15% are the recruiters who go to the effort of finding synonyms for “fantastic” and “exciting”.
If you’d like to be one of this exclusive 15% of recruiters who don’t fall into the trap of using overworked clichés, here’s a list of alternative adjectives you can use to describe your job vacancies…
Now you can write things like “This sensational company have a mind-blowing opportunity…”
That’ll get the best candidates beating a path to your door.
Did you know that the word cliché was originally French for the sound of a printing plate which prints the same thing over and over? I’ve added this piece of trivia because I felt that you ought to learn at least one thing from reading this blog.
By the way, those stats I quoted at the beginning are made up. They feel real though.
