Knowing the job definition is just the first step. The next part is translating that information into a detailed job description. That said, an effective job description accomplishes the following:
- Attracts qualified applicants
- Filters unqualified candidates out of the application process
To achieve these goals, try to focus on keeping only relevant information in your job description. Here are the essential pieces of information you need to provide:
1. Company Overview. Provide a brief overview of your organization and sprinkle interesting details.
2. Job Description. For most job titles, you’ll find generic job descriptions. But in this case, you need to specify details depending on the requirements of the job. For example, you may add a certain experience level or skill in the description.
3. List of Responsibilities. Attach a list of responsibilities the applicants can expect once they are on board.
4. List of Skills and Qualifications. Clearly list the skills expected of each applicant. The more detailed the list, the more quickly you can filter out which candidates meet the requirements.
5. Compensation packages, benefits, perks, etc. (Optional)
