Hello folks...

Given two job listings: (A) and (B), which one you prefer and why?

And which one are you more inclined to click through the job listing itself/application form?

I prefer A, it has more detail....something a lot of job ads are severely lacking these days.

Unquestionably A. More detail == good.

+1 for A, more detail is good.

Can I choose a mixture of A and B.

A has too much pointless fluff. B has too little useful info.

definitely A as it is well laid out and has detail about the position without being over weighed down with descriptions that can be sorted later.  B doesn't have enough detail to really consider it.

IT folk, and PMs, are generally "fact-finders" who love detail. Hence A works very well for them.  Sales folk, not so much.
