Justification of Ineffective Advertisement
Excessive details about the job or area
An ineffective advertisement will reveal too much details and information about the job. This is crucial to allow the candidate to spark interest as divulging too much information will potentially remove interest in the job.
Too many words, keep it simple
Another common characteristic for ineffective advertisement is too many words. Cluttered advertisements will be very boring and will make candidates ignore such advertisements. On the other hand, simple and striking advertisements tend to leave a deeper impression on candidates.
Old fashioned layout and uncreative designs
Creative designs and attractive layouts will compel human desire to work at a environment that is vibrant and healthy. Which in turn attracts a lot of interested candidates. People tend to look down or look away when it comes to uninviting designs.
Uninspiring, boring descriptions of roles and ideal candidates
People looking for jobs usually will judge a company by the advertisement, with boring, uninspiring descriptions in the advertisement, candidates will not be inspired or motivated to know more about the roles and thus, reduce possible ideal candidates.
Too much emphasis on the job and not enough on the person
Putting too much emphasis on the job, will make candidate feel they are left out, and be convinced that the organisation is more to looking for someone to just fill in the vacant jobs, rather than finding the ideal and most suitable candidate for the job.
Too much emphasis on what you want, and not enough of what can be offered.
Being a job seeker, they usually would ask for what can the organisation offer them, but in this case, if you put too much focus on what you want from them, they would feel that the organisation is not sincere in hiring them, and would not be expected to approach the…...

Ineffective Communication

...Communication is a major component of the nursing profession. A problem that is common in the facility where I work is ineffective communication in the workplace. Ineffective communication in the nursing profession could potentially have a negative effect on nurses as well as the patients that are cared for on a daily basis. One example of ineffective communication that often comes to mind is in giving report from one unit to another. It is imperative to give a clear, concise report on your patient to others that may be involved in their care. So many times, when a patient is being transferred, report is called and given to one nurse. Many times the nurse who receives the report may not even be the nurse who will be caring for the patient. When this occurs, it is extremely easy for orders to be misunderstood, important parts of the patient’s history to be missed and allergies that are miscommunicated. Each of these points could end in a potentially life threatening situation for the patient. Ineffective communication can easily be contributed to by the workload of the nurses and physicians, the lack of time a nurse has to do his or her job and interruptions during the course of the shift. When these specific factors arise, the communication between physician and nurse as well as between nurse and patient begins to be burdened. When communication is burdened, patients ultimately lose. Certain orders do not get ordered, certain medications are not given, and patient...

Effective Job Advertisements

...Effective job advertisements These are two job advertisements that I regard as effective. Advertisement 1 is about recruiting teacher or advisor and Advertisement 2 is about recruiting events executive. Both of the advertisements showed above are suitable to publish on newspaper because it is a good way to source for blue-collar and clerical employees. Based on the guide AIDA (attention, interest, desire, action), the title of both advertisements had caught my attention because the font size of the title is bigger. Especially Advertisement 2, it contains a picture, which made the advertisement looks more attractive. Due to the words have already caught my attention, it makes me feel like reading the whole advertisements. Furthermore, I figured out the advertisements stated the job responsibilities and requirement very clearly, it brings out important message to the people who is looking for job. Advertisement 1 is offering full time and part-time positions, so those people with job or without job can join the company too! However, Advertisement 2 which is posted by iM4U, is a non-profit organization, so it needs people who volunteer to join them, it did not offer part-time job. Although they lose a point at convincing people by offering good remuneration, to people who have passion to help improve Malaysian Youth, there’s an opportunity to exert their creativity. Lastly, both of the advertisements are being very clear about action what they want their readers to take.......

...Adver-ties Things In to Everything When people flip through magazines, advertisements are on every other page, but they are quickly overlooked. Advertisements are part of people’s daily lives. This is a big part of what advertisement makers take into account. They need to use certain methods to somehow catch people’s attention in the piles of advertisements that surround everyone. Advertisements are actually mini works of art that take many man hours to manufacture. Advertisements are selling products by use of manipulation on media. There are many parts to advertisements that consumers are blissfully unaware of but affect them psychologically. Many things drive humans to buy goods thinking it will attract a mate, or they think it will fill a need. Advertisement makers are very good at going into a person’s mind and making them think the products they are selling are needed. The makers of advertisements are skillfully weaving masterpieces that a reader will glance upon, but still get a message conveyed to them via imagery, manipulation, and text. The audience of this advertisement might be that of the fashion conscientious. This specific advertisement was found in a 2010 Cosmopolitan magazine. This particular magazine is targeted towards women ranging from the age of 20-40 years of age meaning advertisements in the magazine are also geared towards women in that age group.
