There are many advantages to having a career microsite separate of your regular website. Most importantly, your target audience for your main, corporate website is most likely not the same as the target audience for the types of job candidates you want to attract.
With a career microsite, your website design, content, navigation, contact forms and other calls to action, and more can be personalized to reflect your company culture—allowing your company to appear more attractive and relevant to job candidates, as opposed to prospects.
Blue Corona can help with all aspects of your career microsite—from design to content. If your budget is limited, we have a huge library of website designs and layouts proven effective for SEO and for converting visits into leads—or in this case, into job candidates. And if you’re looking for something totally custom, we can do that too!
Take a moment and search for one of your open job listings in your service area on Google (ex: “HVAC jobs in Maryland”). Does your website come up? If it doesn’t, you could be losing out on potential job candidates to your competitors!
Search engine optimization (SEO), broadly speaking, is the process of making changes to your website’s code, structure, content, and overall web presence to make it easier for search engines like Google, Yahoo, and Bing to find, read, index, and rank your website. There are thousands of techniques related to SEO, ranging from converting Flash and image files (which are currently difficult for search engines to read/interpret) to plain HTML files to creating reference content and encouraging other websites to link back to it.
Blue Corona has leagues of experience helping businesses rank on the first page of Google. Check out our case studies! For more information on how SEO can help you recruit job candidates, give us a call!
