The Jadon Page

What would we actually call this page? It seems like a re-invention of the About Us Page? or maybe not “us” but About the Company. higher level as “us” could sound more like the team.

Downloadable Resource 1

Recruitment stuff, you’ll love it here. Payara is amazing. Join us. Here’s what you need to know.

Downloadable Resource 2

Procurement stuff. Our company does this and helps these people and industries and here’s everything you want to know about that in one, beautifully designed package. Thanks Denisa.

Download Resource 3

I don’t know what this category is, but I bet it would be more cultural stuff? Except that seems to be a repeat of some of what goes into the recruitement section which makes me think we won’t need 4 categories of resources on this page.

Resource 4

Payara values and mission statement. I mean, we can talk about this in a guide but it’s already on the about us page so not 100% sure we would need that as a download either except for it gives Mag a nice place to send people for all info for recruiting instead of linking them to about us and join us.

Team and Company Blogs

Payara Culture

here’s a table of contents that will jump to each blog section since having them on the page means scrolling past 10 blogs to get to the next section and people won’t do that.

Fish Food for Thought

This probably needs a new title but this is where we’d put the department related HR, Marketing, Sales topics – which will all nicely tie into Payara in general.

  • Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery (BCDR) 08 Feb 2021

     In reality, the “perfect” applicant doesn’t exist. Agree?  Let me explain.  Here at Payara we like to do things differently. That includes candidate selection.  Not because we want to be noticed and branded with glory and fame and have our name up in lights on a grand stage at a gala award ceremony being lavished with trophies and gifts from high-level celebrities – but because it is often the right thing to […]

  • Instagram for B2B Marketeers 16 Dec 2020
