Will this help me work with hiring managers? Our workshop students say that our hiring manager intake is the best part of our job post writing training. Included with this course is an unreleased, course-only hiring manager intake the Three Ears Media team uses every time we write a job posting. There's also an entire lesson dedicated to hiring manager intake.
What if the role I am writing is very specialized, niche, or department-specific? Will this course cover that? Yes. We provide info on how to tailor your job post for your industry, niche, and level. We know job postings aren't one size fits all and have designed this course to offer advice you can use across any posting. When information doesn't apply, we'll mention that, too.
Once I pay, how do I log on and start my class? After you complete your purchase, a PDF of instructions will appear. It will direct you to the course URL and password you'll use to access the videos, worksheets, and templates.
What forms of payment do you take? We accept payment through PayPal. PayPal accepts credit or debit cards. We will not invoice outside of this system. Please pay through PayPal. Is this course designed to be a Netflix binge, i.e., every single episode in a particular order, or is it more of a "choose your adventure?" This course is not a Netflix binge. It's meant to offer dynamic, on-demand advice while you're formulating job posting content. Use the content and examples you need when you need them. Our videos are hyper-focused on each specific element of a well-written job post. With our inclusive job posting formula, whether it’s the right job title to inclusive language, the first sentence to the final bullet, you have the option to watch only the content you need.
What is the time commitment of this course? Each segment of the inclusive job post formula has a ten-minute coaching video, plus two FAQ videos. Time spent on the worksheet and writing exercises is flexible. If you watched the entire course beginning to end and completed the student activities as you go, it would take around four hours.
Will you be grading any assignments or giving feedback? How will I know if I genuinely improve? No, unfortunately. As a small but mighty team, it's unrealistic to review and provide free coaching for every student. We encourage you to follow the steps outlined in our worksheet and rely on our downloadable examples as templates. If you would like Katrina's help rewriting a job posting or getting your array of questions answered, you should book a one-on-one session with Katrina. Alumni of this course have a lifetime discount on any Three Ears Media services. Of course, if you have a technical question about a specific aspect of the assignment or course, send an email, and an expert will get back to you.
How long will I have access in case I want to watch it again? Forever. That's the coolest part. Most courses only give you access for 90 days to one year.
What if I'm just a terrible writer? If you've convinced someone to work for you, you're not a terrible writer. For many of us, there's just a block between our brains and hands. We've been told we weren't good writers or thought it before.
Here's the truth. People weren't taught to write job postings (before now, at least). Instead, we were taught lies about writing and told that we have to follow the rules and write in a stilted, overly-formal tone to be professional. The rules have changed.
Anyone can write a great job post if they learn both the new tactics and philosophy behind the content. It's not about being a great writer; it's about understanding who you're writing for and what information they need. If you get both of those pieces, you will write a great job posting.
What if the "rules" about writing job postings change again? Will the course be updated? This is a dynamic course. As we experience new writing challenges with our customers, we will develop additional content for students. If there's something you want to be addressed, email us and let us know!
What if I just want the videos or the templates? Do I have to buy the whole thing? Yes, you have to buy the whole thing. After training 100 companies in the last two years, we've found the combo of tutorials and examples/templates is most effective in learning to write job postings.
