Here are some of the unique features of Foot Locker’s career site.
Predictive Job Search
The search functionality must be one of the strongest assets on your career site. Foot Locker offers predictive search which helps candidates find roles and locations based off of the first few key strokes entered within the search field. In the example above, the candidate typed in “mark” which garnered marketing openings, but also suggested four roles based in Markham, Ontario. This type of search helps job seekers narrow down a list of appropriate openings.
Candidates are savvy shoppers and are looking for their apply process to mirror that of their online shopping experience. Ensure your site is mobile friendly to enhance your candidate experience and increase the number of completed applications.
Job Recommendation Based on Location
When candidates first visit a hyper-personalized career site, a pop-up asks if they will allow access to their location. By granting this permission, candidates can see the job openings closest to them. On Foot Locker’s site, it retrieved my IP address and suggested open roles nearest me.
Saved Job Cart
Save your candidates the hassle of applying to every job they want in one sitting by giving them a job cart. Job carts save the roles job seekers want so they can apply at their own pace. Think about when you’re shopping online. Something catches your eye and to avoid having to find it again, you throw it in your cart to evaluate for later. This same thinking applies for a job cart.
One of the more robust features of a career site is allowing candidates to promote the roles on social. Each of Foot Locker’s job descriptions provides the functionality to let job seekers share the position to their networks via Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, and Google+, and also includes a button that pushes out the posting through email. Once clicked, another window appears that lets the user share it directly from the career site.
