Augmented writing has taken off and employers have taken notice. You could hire a copywriter to write your job descriptions but wouldn’t you rather give your ENTIRE hiring team (recruiters and hiring managers included) augmented writing tools?

So, one of the biggest challenges is writing job descriptions that are gender-neutral and free of other bias.

This is where using an augmented writing tool helps so much.

What is Augmented Writing?

Augmented writing is writing that involves technology that serves as a writing coach.

It also helps improve writing by highlighting problem words and suggesting better words.

Augmented writing tools (which often use A.I.) are important for job descriptions because they notice things such as:

  • Gender bias — 94% of employers lean masculine.
  • Exclusionary words — You might be using politically incorrect/offensive terms.
  • Age bias — Did you know you can sued if you use language suggesting you want a young candidate (“digital native”, “recent grad”, “youthful energy”, etc.?
  • Unconscious bias — Remember, most bias is inadvertent (unconscious)…but the outcome is still poor if you have it.
  • Paragraph and sentence length —  The length of your sentences and paragraphs impacts your apply rate.
  • Use of bullets — Most JDs have bulleted sections but what’s the right # of bullets?
  • Optimal job titles — Many JDs use internal speak when it comes to a title (as opposed to what the candidate is searching for)

Text Analyzer (by Ongig)

Ongig’s Text Analyzer is an augmented writing tool focused on job descriptions. So, it’s part of Ongig’s mission to eliminate biased job descriptions.

Here’s an example of gender bias:

Other Augmented Writing Tools (not focused on job descriptions)

If you’re looking to leverage augmented technology beyond recruiting/HR, there are a couple of great tools to consider:

Grammarly — Grammarly is the best known augmented writing tool for general writing. So, there are no features specific to recruiting. They also have a free and paid version. The pricing for the premiums Grammarly starts at $19.98 per month. In addition, there is business pricing starting at $12.50 per month

HemingwayApp — This augmented writing tool focuses on general writing. So there is a free to use version. However, the new AI version of this tool is not free. The prices range from $10 per month to $15 per month. 

Neither Grammarly or HemingwayApp is a job description tool. So, you won’t see any features like job title analysis or flagging of words that are known to hurt job ad performance. But they can be helpful to your overall writing.

To wrap up, using augmented writing technology makes your job description writing punchier and, in some cases, more inclusive. And it can save your recruiters and hiring managers a bunch of time.
