no flaming here.
I think you did ok for an entry level business poster :) As mentioned
by Steve, the salary range would be a good thing to include.
As fer the title, the entry level position should be stated as such.
That way people that want to break into the field know they have a
chance and it will catch their eye while scanning titles. I'd separate
the two jobs into separate listings or email sections for clarity. The
key for the entry level would be to call it something like: Software
Engineer - Entry Level Opportunity. (company wise the title would be
whatever they use normally: Engineer, Software Engineer, etc) This is
just a suggestion of course, but if I were needing such an opportunity,
that sort of title would catch my eye so that I could then read more
about the opportunity. Admittedly the less-senior engineer did too, but
it might be a bit too casual outside of a medium like this where we know ya.
Just a little interesting factoid from researching word use/reaction in
public settings, the word "opportunity" is a very strong word,
meaning/image wise, when marketing such things... as long as the rest of
the message context enforces that the opportunity portrayed is genuine.
