Job descriptions are an essential part of the hiring process. They perform two major functions for a company: framing the business needs and helping attract candidates based on skills and profile matching. Without a clearly defined job description, it would be very difficult to:
- Attract appropriate candidates, particularly for in-demand roles.
- Effectively evaluate a person’s fit for the role.
Although individual elements and layouts may vary between organisations and platforms, the majority of job descriptions follow the same broad structure, including: job title, role description, skills and experience requirements and salary and benefits information.
