101 Company Career Site Blog Examples

It is no secret that I love to blog. Eight years and counting. Blogs provide a great platform for all types of content including video, infographics, photos, and the long written form. Blogs, particularly on career sites, provide a number of benefits you might not have considered for your company. (This blog and list has been updated as of March 22, 2016.)

Blogs allow career sites to be:

  • Fresh and always updated
  • A platform focused on building relationships
  • Optimized and more easily found by search engines
  • Tell a digital story about your employment brand, culture and/or employees
  • A platform to recognize employees
  • Bridge the gap between your customer and your candidate
  • Offering an interactive platform to feature recruiting and employment content
  • Share special announcements, milestones and celebrations

Adoption when it comes to blogging for marketers is on the low. Blogging is hard work. Developing content is a challenge, and it just might be the best platform to use to differentiate your company culture and employment brand. It just might be the differentiator you need.

A recent study from career and employment research firm, PotentialPark found that when it comes to employer blogs,

  • 40% of candidates are blog visitors
  • 18% of employers have an employer or career related blog
  • 55% of candidates prefer an employee centric blog versus recruiter centric
  • 81% of candidates kick the tires and take a look a company career site BEFORE they apply
