Considerations For Recruitment Agencies
There is a basic checklist that recruitment companies do need to consider when approaching a website designer:
- Look And Feel – the website needs to look the part.
- Access For Users – the website needs to be interactive for users
- Easy To Update – the website will be modified daily, so it needs to be user friendly.
- Marketing – the site needs to stand out in a busy and highly competitive industry.
