8 best career pages for 2019
At Recruitee, we absolutely love admiring well-crafted career pages. Seeing how companies are putting their best foot forward to attract the best candidates is inspiring and (at times) fun to witness. A career page can be the window to the soul of the company. When done well, they reflect what the company is actually like from the inside.
With three out of four job seekers reviewing company social media pages and Glassdoor reviews before applying, it’s crucial for you to get your career page right. To give you some inspiration, we have listed the best career pages, in random order, for 2019!
8 best career pages of 2019
The first company in our list of best career pages is Hotjar. Hotjar is a leading European tech startup in conversion rate optimization. They aim to help companies gather more insights into their website visitors behavior. Even though the company is based in Malta, the Hotjar team is fully remote. This makes hiring and communicating the employer brand a big challenge.
Hotjar absolutely nailed their career page, though. The page shows a collection of pictures of team holidays and international meet-ups. It even includes a short movie about one of their holidays, showcasing their team “vibe”.
But showing happy faces of your employees is not the only thing that’s important. Many companies often forget to explain what they’re all about and what they’re trying to achieve. Hotjar does this perfectly by including an animated explainer video that showcases what their product does.
Including the Glassdoor score is also a smart move as it gives visitors social proof that they are a trusted company to work for. Also, the visualization of the application process gives potential candidates a better idea of what to expect if (and when) they apply.
Nuuvem is the largest online gaming store in Latin America for PC, Mac, and Linux games. They have a catalog of several thousand games from the big publishers like Rockstar Games and Ubisoft. They are the go-to place in Latin America for gamers!
Nuuvem’s careers page truly reflects their love for gaming. The dark background gives the careers site a techy look and feel. The careers site also includes some popular gaming characters, making it feel like a familiar place. Nuuvem has done a solid job of building a landing page that fits the personal preferences of their target audience. The colors, the gaming characters, and the playful icons with their minimalist styling are a great way to attract the right people: gamers. The target-specific design definitely makes this site one of the best career pages of 2019.
Teamleader is a fast-growing startup that offers a CRM and project management tool that helps teams in SMEs cooperate better. They currently have offices all over Europe and are constantly expanding. Teamleader’s mission is to provide affordable and intuitive software to small business owners and to help them grow.
Teamleader has a clean and smooth careers page that checks all the right boxes. They nail their employer branding with multiple videos and a list of perks of working at Teamleader. The colors and illustrations give the careers site a warm and distinct look, making the company more likable. Just like Hotjar, Teamleader also maps out the entire application process in a visual way. While it might be a small detail, it actually has a big impact on the overall candidate experience.
The international marketing agency has built an amazing interactive careers page with many small details that enhance the user experience. The header image has the word “careers” faded behind the header text, giving it a design-friendly, sophisticated look and the header menu is fixed at the top when scrolling down. The photo collage below the open jobs shows some illustrative company moments without overdoing it and the employee profiles are a nice touch and give the organization more personality. Spotzer has all the ingredients in place to be considered as one of the best career pages!
Hotelchamp is a young startup that recently experienced astonishing growth in just three years time. Looking to disrupt the hospitality industry by providing hotels with the technology to increase direct bookings, they have built a clientele of over 1,500 hotels in over 50 countries.
This growth wouldn’t have been possible without hiring the right people. To do this, Hotelchamp has built a beautiful careers page that tells visitors what they do and what it’s like to work for them. Their employer brand video includes employees explaining what makes working at Hotelchamp exceptional. Also, the number of office photos help candidates to imagine themselves working there- a good sign if you’re looking to increase conversions!
TrustedShops, a German e-commerce trust brand, has really gone all out on their careers page. The header video grabs your attention and makes you want to stay on the site to see what’s going. The visual way of displaying some office statistics and perks of working there give the page a warm and personal vibe. The funny “behind the seal” video shows the international character and playfulness of the company well. The employer awards at the bottom of the careers site also prove that TrustedShops is acknowledged by other organizations as well as a great place to work. TrustedShops is definitely a Recruitee favorite among the list the best career pages.
The Student Hotel has done a thorough job of using their brand colors to create a distinct look on their careers page. The yellow color helps to create a contrast (that really pops!) between different sections of the website, encouraging visitors to scroll down. The Student Hotel does a good job of using social proof from their employees. This makes it more likely for prospective candidates to convert and apply for a job.
Cordaan is a leading healthcare company in the Netherlands, providing home care and mental care to people all over the country. They’ve done an excellent job of building the careers page in the same style as the main site, making their whole online experience seamless. As a result, the career site feels consistent and familiar. Also, the header reflects the Cordaan brand. Something that other companies sometimes forget is to put the contact details of the recruiters on the careers page. Cordaan makes their recruiters accessible to potential talent coming across their careers site. At the bottom of the careers site, you can see the recruiters and who to contact for various positions.
