“Synchronize watches and move out!”
We’ve all heard that line, or something like it, in a movie. XML job post management doesn’t usually require groups of anxiously determined people, bent over their watches, before scooting determinedly off in different directions.
But the job management stakes are high for millions, including you.
Whether you love or hate action movies, your career is about action and results. You are tasked with making things happen in a world where the stakes are high and the plot thickens with every technological or societal twist.
It should be classified as sci-fi, but it’s real.
Casting You as the Action Hero
Your plot saw a huge twist with the advent of the internet. Suddenly it was easy to get job posts out there; and just as easy for enthusiastic amateurs to apply for any job — as easy as ABC, in fact — on the off-chance they might get a result. Making management tough.
Then came the downturn; then the upsurge; then the COVID catastrophe – desperation, mass resignation – it all seems to crash down on recruiters whatever the weather.
Targeting your jobs at the qualified experts you want to fill your candidate pool is key. Avoiding the enthusiastic amateurs who use technology to their career advantage is more important now than it ever was. And retention is everything.
So what’s the solution? Technology!
ABC vs. XML
XML (eXtensible Markup Language), is designed to turn the ABC ease of online job applications in your favor. By enabling you to manage your job posts in a fast and efficient manner, you can target talent and control results with synchronized efficiency.
But it’s still about how the hero of the movie goes about it.
Advances in technology turned the phrase Post-and-Pray into Spray-and-Pray. XML job post management does offer huge advantages in terms of high quality distribution across the net.
An XML job feed connects your jobs to job aggregators and optimizes the process for formatting, consistency, and so on. Online search optimization is also easy enough and covers various areas:
- Use keyword sensitive job titles
- Maximize keyword density
- Mention the nearest metro area in location
- Allow aggregators to pull from your careers page
So the secret sauce lies in fine targeting.
Ladders’ XML Job Feed
Let’s give Ladders a part in this movie.
As a company dedicated to $100K-$500K+ professionals, with an average of 15+ years of experience, a bachelor’s degree pool that stands at 89% and a Master’s degree pool that stands at 36% across industries, we answer specific needs by design.
With an XML job post management feed, each time a new $100K+ job is added to your system, it’ll be automatically added to Ladders, too, for flawless targeting of high-end candidates. And when it closes, the post will be automatically removed.
Automated targeting combined with flawless synchronization.
If interested, you can learn about our XML feed guide. After your development team has created the feed, you can submit it to us at the address provided and you’re good.
Staying up with the times doesn’t get you ahead. Smart choices based on specific needs still spells success. That will never change.
So what’s the next evolution of the phrases Post-and-Pray and Spray-and-Pray?
In the movies, the hero makes the call, so we’ll leave it with you.
