A company’s careers page is an important yet often overlooked part of their website. Many companies just list their open roles and link to the online application. But that’s only part of what goes into a successful careers page.
This section of your website should also summarize what it’s like to work for your company. It should tell a potential employee what perks you offer, what your workplace is like and what your company values. A visitor should be excited to apply for an open job after learning about your company.
