Your institution’s employment website is the front door for prospective job applicants. Compared to their out-of-sector counterparts, though, higher ed employment websites are harder to navigate and undersell the value of working at the institution. In today’s hyper-competitive labor market, campus leaders must upgrade their employment website to convince prospective applicants it is worth their effort to apply.

How higher ed employment websites fall short compared to out-of-sector competitors


Less likely to have a visually engaging mix of text and images


Less likely to include employee testimonials on benefits of workplace


Less likely to provide concrete DEIJ actions the institution has taken

What is EAB’s Employment Website Audit?

To help campus leaders attract and convince talented applicants to apply, EAB offers the Employment Website Audit for Strategic Advisory Services partners.

This audit will help you avoid common website mistakes with advice from out-of-sector organizations. You will receive a customized report with prioritized improvement recommendations for your employment website along with actionable advice and examples to help expedite implementation.
