Job Listings That Don't Alienate (with images, tweets) · kissane · Storify
People like:
- Language that implies inclusivity (no all-male pronouns, welcoming apps from underrepresented groups)
- Explicit benefits mentions, especially around big stuff like parental leave
- Realistic list of requirements vs "nice to haves"

People don't like:
- Ninja/rockstar/etc words (it comes off as you are looking for a nonexistent unicorn)
- Work hard/play hard, other language implying a lack of boundaries around expectations for time spent working or in the office
- Along those lines, perks that basically allow to you live at work
- Overly aggressive list of requirements, including a CS degree
