1. SHOWCASE YOUR COMPANY CULTURE AND EMPLOYEE EXPERIENCE

The millennial generation cares more about their work environment than ever before. You can showcase your company culture on an Industry business profile so that prospective employees can see what it is like to work for you. Prospective job seekers want to know your mission, what you stand for, and what to expect when they work for you. On your Industry business profile, you can add video content to showcase all of this information to give prospective job seekers a behind the scene tour of your business.

2. ADD OR ENHANCE THE JOBS SECTION OF YOUR WEBSITE

Do you have a jobs section on your company website? If so, great!
