Job descriptions

Job descriptions

A job description is your first chance to present your company and to list specific requirements and tasks that your Rails engineer will have to complete. Therefore, it’s essential that you craft a detailed job description. This allows Ruby on Rails engineers to adjust their resumes according to your job posting and even to complete it with frameworks or tools that he/she might have worked with but failed to mention. It’s surprising how many people have more experience than what they mention in the resume. However, the opposite is also true. Many applicants often add false statements and abilities to their resumes. It’s your duty to make sure that what they claim is true.

If you’re looking for someone who only works with the Rails framework, make sure that you do mention that any other framework is not accepted unless you offer Rails training for suitable candidates.

The Many Possible Reasons Why Your AdWords Campaigns Might Fail Without You Knowing

AdWords campaign

Are you looking to find some of the reasons why your AdWords (SEM) campaigns do not perform as well as you expect them to? Take a look at some of the reasons listed below and see what you can improve right now for better results.

You are not using all free functionalities AdWords offers. See device adjustments, demographic targeting, ad extensions or the more recent message extensions. Not all features are the right ones for your business, but it is up to you or your PPC manager to handle the testing and find the optimal solutions for the perfect ad structure for you.

Accidental clicks. People might click on your SERP ad simply by accident. This is something you can’t really avoid as people could be looking for what you are advertising but would rather not click on the ad. This is also an issue when your paid ad appears right above your very own organic link. You can only expect a user to know that you pay for every click and decide to go with the organic link instead.

Annoying ads. This is the case of remarketing as people are used to seeing your ad everywhere and coming across the ad once again on the search results page won’t make them trust you more. To solve this, limit the number of times your ad will show to a person who is involved in your remarketing process and test user reaction and interaction. Another mistake is retargeting someone who has already bought your product or used your services. Suppose the user who sees your ad for an online game you want to advertise is already playing the game on a regular basis. He/She may use the advertisement just to get back to the game. This does not generate any profit to you. The only way for you to save some of your clicks is by creating ads for advanced game/product features that are not being used by all players yet. Be aware that Internet users don’t trust most ads and people are still afraid to shop online.

Caring for Depression in the Workplace

Caring for Depression in the Workplace

Integrating employees with depression in the work field shouldn’t be a hassle. Most often, such employees find it difficult to adapt to new working conditions and even to cooperate with their co-workers. This, however, is no reason for shoving away a well-prepared possible or existing employee. Often, they become the subject of workplaces bullying. It is important that we create working conditions equal to those we offer to other employees. The purpose should be to end discrimination both in the recruitment/selection and in the working process.

Also, the nature of the company’s activity should not affect the candidate. If you truly believe that the working environment you provide may be harmful to them, it’s best that you recommend either other positions in your company or other ways of further developing his/her career in a different organization or field. DO keep their resume and records for any other future possibilities and assure them that they will be contacted in case a better position that matches their expertise is available. You should be aiming to objectively choose the right talent out of all the candidates.

Induction, as usual, should not be skipped and it can even be more detailed than usual. Check for signs that show how your working environment may be causing or influencing their depression. This is usually an indicator of a need to revise and improve the way in which you manage your human resources and working relations. Eventual conflicts inside your company can lead to workers’ ineffectiveness and exhaustion. Employees need to feel engaged in all of your tasks and want to be seen as efficient and dependable workers. As a leader, if you are truly interested in your employees’ well-being, express empathy and compassion without making anyone feel inferior or useless. Only a positive and enthusiastic attitude can lead to job satisfaction and even management appreciation. Stress in the workplace strongly impacts the performance of all of your personnel. Meeting the daily needs of your employees and dealing with possible issues should be a priority if you want your productivity to rise.
