We spotted this job ad below on Craigslist recently — CarMax is standing out here by using its Fortune Employer of Choice award as its hero media alongside a visual map.

For the candidate, this job ad pops versus others that lack visuals — so you’ll get their attention for a few more valuable seconds (and, of course, the employer of choice award acts as social proof).

We’re going to keep beating this drum:

“All job ads will have visuals like this within the next 2 to 3 years”

And if your job ads do not have them now you are already falling behind.
