How to Make a Job Flyer
By Christina Shaffer
If you’re looking to create a job flyer with virtually no cost, look no further. All PCs include “Microsoft Works,” a free word-processing program that allows you to design and print your own job flyer. With a little thought and creativity, you can design an eye-catching job flyer that will attract a large audience.
Open “Microsoft Works Word Processor" and begin designing your job flyer by inserting a headline. A simple headline, combined with a creative font, can attract a larger audience. Align the headline in the top center of the page. Experiment with the text font, text size and text color until you’re satisfied with the overall look.
Type a concise summary of the job position. Under the summary, list all of the job qualifications under the headline. Consider adding bullet points to each specification. Bullets stand out and can draw more attention to your flyer. You can experiment with the font size and text size, but make sure that the body of your flyer is easy-to-read.
Add your contact information at the bottom of the page, including your name, email address and phone number. If you have a website, include your website address in the contact information.
Add clip art, logos or personal images to your document. Images will add to the allure of your flyer and draw attention to your job posting. Insert images by clicking on the toolbar and choosing “Picture From File” or “Clip Art.” If you do not want to use personal images, Microsoft Works offers a free clip art database. Experiment with the alignment of the images in your document. You may need to format the image in order to freely move it in your document. Right-click the image, choose “Format Image” and select your preferred format from the list of options.
Proofread and save your new document. Click “File” and choose “Print Preview” to view the layout of your new job flyer. Print the document.
- Consider using bright paper or card stock to add more appeal to your job flyer.
