Opening up your job application process to the world could mean having to sort through lots of unqualified candidates, though. So what can you do to make sure the applicants who turn up are suitably qualified? 

Strategies to Attract Solid Talent

These are just some of the things you can do to draw better incoming talent via your website: 

1. Make sure your site works and speaks to your target audience.

Just as you need to write copy that appeals to your target customer, you ought to make design and writing choices that appeal to your ideal job candidates if you want good people to apply.
