      1. Introduction
      Advertisements, as an important medium for the employers to recruits their ideal talents are of great significance. It reflects the interaction and negotiation between the two sides of participants. Thus it is important to analyze the discourse which helps applicants to precisely understand the implications of the employers and increase the rate of successes.
      2. Methodology

Based on the data analysis, some of the characters of the recruitment advertisements are revealed.
      3. Findings and discussion
      In the recruitment advertisements, one of the speech roles is to give the information of company, vacant position, job duties and how to apply. The other is to demand the talents to take action to apply. The ensuing part will demonstrate how advertisers can realize the two basic roles in recruitment advertisement by use of Mood structure. According to the analysis, declarative mood structures and elliptical declarative structures are up to 96.3%, which take up a heavy proportion. It is similar to Pandya’s study (1977) and Huang Guowen’s study(2001). They are typically used to give information including the situation of companies, job duties and their requirements. As for demanding action to make talents to apply, only a few companies adopt imperative clauses. Most of them don’t ask it directly but describe the advantages to encourage employees to apply. This is also one reason why declarative mood structures are the main structures in recruitment advertisements. Another phenomenon is the frequent use of that elliptical declarative mood structures in it. They make the advertisements concise and valid so that potential employees could find the most appropriate job in a short time.
