Jobs happen in motion, so why do we communicate the tasks, organizational culture, work environment and skill through a boring, text‐based posting? You've probably heard of  "employer branding" but what does it mean, and how can we "brand" ourselves with the limited resources and tools available? What can you actually do about your organization's brand? If these questions keep you up at night, join Abby from Skill Scout as she gives a crash course in employer branding and visual job postings –and then roll up your sleeves to get started on your very own branding and visuals! You can do it, we promise. Bring your smart phone. You'll communicate your jobs better, hire faster, and retain your best employees.


  • Identify why storytelling and visuals are key to attracting talent (through da- ta!)
  • How to capture the best photos that make your job and workplace environment stand out
  • How to use short video to showcase your work and environment
  • Identify and outline the key pieces to your next visual job posting
