New eBook: The Skinny on Job Descriptions

Posted by Erin Borgerson on March 22, 2013

how to write a job description

There are two different definitions for job descriptions. The first comes from good 'ol Wikipedia and it states that a job description is "a list that a person might use for general tasks, or functions, and responsibilities of a position." This definition would probably be accurate for most hiring managers looking to attract ordinary (see: bad hire) talent. 

The second definition of job descriptions comes from hiring managers looking to attract top experienced talent. It states "A job description is a marketing piece that attracts readers, engages them, and makes them want to apply for the position." That is the kind of job description you want if you are looking for great talent.
