Don’t know where (or how) to start creating a job description template? Here’s are 5 tools to help you write them with ease:
Ongig is a great tool if you need help creating a job description template for diversity, or speed and scale.
You can easily create templates to keep your JDs consistent. And, Ongig allows you to set scoring goals like “readability” or “diversity,” based on your hiring goals.
For example, if you want to make your JDs easier to read, set your “readability” goal to an 8th-grade reading level (or below). Or, if you want to recruit more female candidates, set a “gender-neutrality” goal based on the % of female and male-coded words.
Once you build your job description templates, Ongig gives you tips and best practices around:
- lengthy JD requirements that might turn off candidates
- gender neutrality: male- vs. female-coded words
- biased language: race, age, sexual orientation, disability, etc.
- important sections job seekers look for like salary, benefits, EEO, and DEI statements
- readability: conciseness vs. wordy sentences and complex words
