Job Descriptions Introduce Candidates To Your Company
Job descriptions are more than descriptions of open positions. They are potential employees’ first impression of your company. Effective job descriptions can help candidates understand what it’s like to work at your company and encourage them to apply. When preparing job descriptions it is important to remember: “You will never get a second chance to make a first impression”. Here are some tips to help you prepare job descriptions that will help you hire.
Use The Test Of Reversal
When preparing job descriptions, 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 and any awards that the company has won. These specifics will help you connect with the candidates who you want to hire.
Why Is This A Great Job?
When you describe the job responsibilities and challenges, help candidates visualize why this is a rewarding position. This can be a lead-in to discussing opportunities for personal growth and advancement.
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.
Keep Your Job Descriptions Updated
Job requirements and companies change with time, so review and update your job descriptions on a regular basis.
