What do candidates want from a recruitment website?

We asked 100 recruiters to ask 100 candidates what they thought was needed on their websites to suit the needs of those candidates, and the feedback was…


  1. Easy to find jobs.
  2. A job search with the right filters.
  3. A recruiter’s name and contact info on the job.
  4. Clear and direct access to who the recruiters are and what they do.
  5. A website that is made for a mobile experience.


What the website looks like they care very little about and consider that mostly to be about the ego/personal taste of the recruiter. Unless it is an utterly horrendous design, they couldn’t really care less.


Please note I am Dyslexic, and in my form, I am blind to grammar, and sometimes I get my fors and fours, etc. backwards.  I am not stupid – in fact, my IQ and EQ are both quite high.  Please keep that in mind when you read my posts.  Thanks.
