Review before you post
Before posting a job description for the world to see, it’s good to have the hiring manager and someone who actually does the job read the job description for accuracy and clarity. Google gives reviewers these quick tips:
- Read the description out loud
- Fewer words win
- Use clear, intuitive language and avoid jargon and acronyms
- Remember to keep language inclusive
In addition to the wording, Google strives for structural clarity. Internal research shows that candidates skip over large text blocks and go straight to the requirement bullets. So, the hiring team often formats postings (e.g., incorporating headings, bullets, shorter paragraphs) to make them easier for candidates to read.
