Job Description Optimization

Optimize Job Descriptions for Greater Inclusion

Leverage sophisticated algorithms powered by scientific research to write more effective job descriptions. Real-time feedback helps you create job listings that equally attract male, female, and minority candidates. With our job description optimization, we analyze the job description and identify problematic words, based on research, that have been shown to detract under represented applicants from applying for a job. We are the only platform that goes beyond gender parity, compared to others on the market, to ensure the broadest and most diverse applicant pool is attracted to the job.

Identify problematic terms and replace with inclusive terms for:

  • Gender Parity
  • People of Color
  • People with Disabilities
The initial score of the job description appears once the job description is uploaded and analysied. The score updates automatically when optimizations are done.

Inclusive Job Descriptions Attract Diverse Candidates.

The words we use matter. When writing job descrptions we frequently use terms that are scientifically proven to be problematic and push diverse candidates away from applying. Scientific research has been conducted for nearly a decade to identify the words we use that cause candidates; female, people of color, and people with disabilities, to not apply for our open positions. The scientific research is shown to be more accurate than searching the web for hosts of job descrptions and hoping you find paterns or trends for words that may cause people to not apply. Through research, surveys are conducted where thousands of subjects are asked if certain terms cause them to not feel comfortable in applying. Additionally, the research includes surveys to identify inclusive terms where candidates have greater comfort in applying.
