Job Description Readability

recruiting microsite for veterans

The best candidates are busy. They need your job ads to be written in Plain English.

Job Title

Did you know the length of your job title affects your apply rate? Ongig's Text Analyzer measures this for you and recommends the ideal length.

Word and Sentence Length

Mark Twain once said:

I didn't have time to write a short letter, so I wrote a long one instead."

He could have easily been talking about job descriptions. The length of your words and sentences and overall job description directly impacts the quality of candidates and apply rate.

Average Grade Level

Did you know that the most compelling text in the world is written at the 9th-grade level and lower?

Yet job descriptions average an 11th-grade level...and sometimes much worse.

Ongig's Text Analyzer measures the grade level of every one of your job descriptions by individual job, department, city, state, country and even recruiter.
