Job Description

What does job description refer to?

A job description is a document that outlines the responsibilities, qualifications, and skills required for a job. It will also usually include a brief outline of the company culture, salary and job benefits as well as an exploration of the working environment and location.

A well-crafted job description not only attracts suitable candidates but also acts as an internal guide, helping recruiters and managers find the right person for the role. The points in the job description provide great material for interviews. Then, because they describe how employee performance will be measured, employees can also be gauged against specific criteria after they’ve been hired.

Job descriptions also save both parties time during the hiring process. This is because effective descriptions ensure that companies find candidates who sync with their missions, visions and company values.

To save even more time, you can use HR software Multiplier’s job description templates to find the right talent. We provide customizable documents for industries from marketing to software. These outline the right amount of detail to include for each section and the key information to include.
