As a recruiting tool, more employers have begun including a sentence or two about the typical career path of the job at the end of each job listing. A majority of employees (51%) say they’d likely stay with an organization if they saw the prospect of job advancement or promotion.
Consider this part of your recruiting sales pitch. It doesn’t have to offer much detail—just suggest there’s room for advancement. Examples:
