It takes a great process to produce a great product. At Recruiters Websites, we are constantly refining our approach to not only improve the efficiency of our service but to also enhance the already robust digital ecosystems we help our clients create. We believe it is our unique approach to the recruiting website design process that allows us to deliver an unparalleled web experience that is customized to be as unique as each firm’s niche, culture and focus. We apply a fundamental strategy to the process that provides necessary direction while allowing for indispensable flexibility.
The fundamental strategy of the recruiting website design process can be broken into four key parts:
1. KICKOFF CALL
As they name would suggest, this is where we truly get the ball rolling on the recruiting website design process. By this point, a member of our team has probably already gotten to know you pretty well, but, as this is your first introduction to the design and development teams, we want to really dive into who you and your company are, what it is you do well, what you would like to do better and how we can help you get there. We’ll get down to the nitty-gritty of content and design, as well as work to determine whether your new website should be focused more toward clients, candidates or if it should be a 50-50 split. Our goal is to leave the kickoff call with a sitemap, a detailed outline that will guide our construction of your new homepage and a lot of energy and excitement.
Some companies conduct design and development simultaneously. They will tell you that this is in the effort to be more efficient. To put it politely, that is a half-truth. Meshing the design and development processes into one may result in a quicker production, but this will most often result in a more hastily produced website that lacks the fashion and function your firm’s online persona deserves. We focus on getting the design perfect. We utilize a platform known as InVision that allows us to create an interactive “picture” of your new website. This grants you the freedom and flexibility to watch the design process in action and make comments, ask questions and offer advice page-by-page. Once we have presented a total portfolio that represents a website you are excited about, we are ready to move to the next step of the recruiting website design process.
There’s an old golf saying: you drive for the show but putt for the dough. Put simply, it’s often the less glamorous aspects an enterprise that account for the greatest amount of responsibility. This maxim holds true for the recruiting website design process. If the design segment of the process is the drive, then development is the putt. While it may seem we are incredibly close to the finished product, there is a great amount of calculation and strategy necessary to navigate the green. In reality, development is a painstaking process that requires focus and precision so that the vision of your website can be perfectly realized. From the coding of each individual page to the integration of applicant tracking systems, job boards or any other relevant plug-ins and platforms, our development team put theory to practice to create a better web presence for your organization.
We don’t put you behind the wheel without showing you how everything works. Not only do we build a great product, but we take the time to develop a user-friendly backend that allows you to easily alter content, pictures and other elements that clients often find themselves needing to adjust. And we train you on how it all works. We don’t just want to build a great website. We want to build a great website that you can use.
Engaging in the recruiting website design process can seem like a daunting move, but we love it, and we’re pretty great at it, too. We also have actual experience within the recruiting industry, so we understand the lingo, realize the struggles and have the knowledge to maximize your opportunities. If you want a better website AND a better experience, we can give you both.
