The first stage of the hiring process is creating a good description of the position you have available. A detailed complimentary announcement of the position you offer may attract the attention of more candidates, thus increasing your chances to pick someone perfectly fitting for your goals.
As Wright State University states, a good job description should not only contain description of work duties, but provide grounds to ensure effective hiring and operational efficiency.A classic job description must contain the following six important accounts.
- Name of the position to briefly describe the essence of the job (such as Teacher, Coach, Salesman, Data Analyst, Content Author, etc.)
- Work purpose, which describes the area for the new employee to take responsibility for;
- Work duties and responsibilities for every role you plan to assign to your new employees;
- Mandatory qualifications, such as education, work experience, skills, and personality traits;
- Preferred qualifications, meaning those which are not required, but will be handy do have.
- Working conditions, including physical peculiarities of the occupation, such as office, remote work, working in shifts, on a rotational basis, etc.
- The more detail your description has, the more candidates fitting your requirements you can find. This can help save time you may otherwise waste on processing bad applications, and attract talents to perfectly fit in within your culture.
