How To Prepare Job Descriptions That Help You Hire
Job Descriptions Introduce Candidates To Your Company
Job descriptions are more than descriptions of open positions. They are candidates’ introduction to your company. When preparing job descriptions it is important to remember that you will never get a second chance to make a good first impression. Here are some tips to help you prepare job descriptions that will help you hire.
Why Is This A Great Company?
Job descriptions can help candidates understand what it’s like to work at your company and encourage them to apply. Be sure to include more than the actual job specifics. Consider what there is about your company that would make it attractive to you, i.e. growth rate, industry, culture, management’s relationship with employees, proximity to good schools and beaches, etc., and include these items. Add positive feedback from recent hires, customer endorsements, awards that the company has won, “employee perks” and other attributes that will encourage candidates to want to join your team.
Don’t fall into the trap of “asking for the moon” in job descriptions. Include only requirements that have been proven to correlate with success rather than anecdotal information. Clearly identify required and preferred criteria.
Why Is This A Great Job?
Prepare a brief narrative with bullet points highlighting responsibilities and challenges that will help candidates visualize why this is a great job and where the job can take them professionally.
Keep Your Job Descriptions Updated
Job requirements and companies change with time, so review and update your job descriptions on a regular basis.
