What Is a Job Description?

A job description is a detailed and elaborate statement of a particular job within an organization written with the intention of seeking the attention of candidates having exact or relatable skills described therein. It is the final outcome of the study on the findings of a job analysis. A job description highlights job designation, purpose, responsibilities and scope of the job in question.

Employees must be aware about their job description as that would assist them in performing their roles and duties efficiently and within the boundaries of the scope. A job description also guides employees in the event of any legal dissent with the organization management.

Job descriptions are employed by the HR to attract the best candidates. But it is important to define a job beforehand and properly. This includes facilitation of proper internal communication between all relevant teams on all job aspects, and can also include Project Management teams and Consultant, to define a job, its specifications and scope. However, the best way to attract great talents is to define a job description patiently and attentively, and thus go through the hiring process. Else, hiring a wrong candidate backfires and causes whole new level of problems for your organization.
