Prepare a Job Description

Key Points

  • While an employer is not required to have written job descriptions, these descriptions prove useful in recruitment, selection and job analysis.
  • A good job description should provide clarity for applicants by describing the essential duties of the position.
  • Descriptions should be updated and revised regularly to ensure they do not become outdated as job roles evolve. They also should be reviewed to ensure compliance with antidiscrimination laws.
