Writing a captivating and informative job ad – with the right keywords – is critical to getting quality responses. We want to make that process as seamless as possible when you’re posting a job on iHire. With our Job Optimizer (JO), iHire helps ensure your job ad attracts the right applicants, saving you time in the hiring process.
While you’re writing your job description, the JO is hard at work, making sure your posting has the elements it needs to attract qualified talent. The strength of your ad is based on its length and content, and the JO’s ratings will range from “Very Weak” to “Great.”
The quantity and quality of the skills you include in your posting play a large role in your overall JO score. That’s because when candidates are searching for jobs online, Search Engine Optimization (SEO) determines which jobs are showing up in their search results. SEO matches the search terms used by the job seeker to pull up relevant jobs that include the same or similar keywords.
To help your ad get more exposure to qualified job seekers, we provide you with a list of industry-focused skills and keywords that candidates in our database are using in their search. These recommendations will populate on the right-hand side of your screen.
If your JO score is lower than you expected, consider these recommendations for improving your job ad.
After you’re done adding content, skills, and keywords to your description, you can get a fresh JO score by clicking the refresh button below your posting:

Our additions to the job posting increased our Job Optimizer score from “So So” to “Great,” and we posted our position with confidence in its ability to draw in qualified talent.
