SHRM 11 Spotlight: How To Create a Killer Career Site

The ‘Why does my company need a career site?’ question is thankfully all but gone but there still remains much confusion and angst around building a great careers website. Most organizations now recognize that their career site is a powerful recruiting tool and yet many sites are not designed with the Candidate experience in mind and therefore fail to engage and capture the right talent.
