What is a Kinetixized Job Description and Why is it Better?

Kinetixized? I can hear you thinking already. What’s that?

Well, in our not-so-technical definition, a Kinetixized job description is one that has the #BleedOrange touch. It’s a description of the job that’s far from the ordinary, and is compiled by the marketing team to purposefully catch the eye of candidates while giving them a flavor for your company.

All right, I can tell you’ll need more explanation. Here’s what puts Kinetixized ahead of the pack.

This is your average, run-of-the-mill job description that I grabbed off every jobseeker’s friend, Indeed:

Duties and Responsibilities:

  • Provide support to National Account Manager and Assistant Account Manager as they facilitate the housing process from start to finish.
  • Search for temporary housing options for displaced policyholders and present them to the National Account Manager for approval.
  • Facilitate and negotiate short-term leases with landlords that meet customer requirements and provide a cost-effective solution for their housing needs.
  • Coordinate and oversee any and all required paperwork to ensure a successful experience.
  • Prepare and manage required documents/database to complete the housing process and submit for billing.
  • Assist with inbound calls related to the department and coming in to the company main line.

Job Type: Part-time

We don’t know about you, but our eyes started to glaze over as we read that. While nothing is structurally wrong with the job description, there’s nothing particularly great about it either.

Where was the insight into what it’s actually like to work at the company? Where was that thing that took the post from “just another job” to “I HAVE to apply for this”?

For comparison, here’s what we did with a standard sales posting:

Got sales skills? We need an upbeat Territory Sales Manager who can own a territory, represent a top-tier company, and sell the best tankless gas water heaters in the country.

Think you’ve got what it takes?
