Writing a Job Description

Conduct a job analysis in order to:

  • develop a detailed description of the tasks involved in the job
  • determine the relationship of the job to other jobs in the organization
  • identify the knowledge and skills necessary to perform the tasks
  • ascertain the desired competencies or behaviors required for successful performance in the job

A job analysis can be done using one or more of these popular methods:

  • observation - watch the employee in the job and note down what has to be done and how it has to be done
  • interview - interview the job incumbent or incumbents and combine the data into one job analysis
  • questionnaire - workers complete a structured questionnaire to identify the job tasks
  • expert input - utilize subject matter experts to gain an understanding of the job. These may include managers, supervisors and consultants.

The job description is a key document for guiding the employee selection and interview process. Without a proper job description it is difficult to determine what you are looking for in a candidate, to describe the job to potential candidates and to evaluate the suitability of job candidates.
