Now it is time to make the theoretical more applied. For this project, you may choose to work alone or collaborate with up to 2 peers.
Surf the employment pages of 3 different corporate websites. Try to choose different industries and/or different sized organizations for comparison. Analyze the major features, strengths, and weaknesses of the recruiting messages you view throughout each site, from the employment splashdown page to specific position postings.
Prepare a brief narrative report that summarizes, compares, and contrasts your findings.
- Does each organization rely on a particular style of recruiting message? If so, which one(s) and why?
- How well do these sites support the trends and strategies presented in this module’s readings?
- Suppose you were an outside consultant brought in to overhaul recruiting at these organizations. What recommendations will you make to revise or change the site or the message presented? Why?
