In my experience Managing a Human Resource Agency and recruiting for people’s homes, businesses and companies, I have found one alarming anomaly amongst individuals, business and company owners alike; It is a very common occurrence to have a client request your recruitment services to fill up certain positions, yet without a crafted job description.
As a matter of policy of practice, before attempting to commence the recruitment for our clients, we take them through the exercise of crafting job descriptions for all the positions they intend filling and although many may find the responsibility of designing job descriptions as mundane or baseless, without them you would open your organization or home to a lot of danger, expose your employee to a state of confusion and leave yourself a frustrated employer with unmet expectations, whose body language, employees lack clues of deciphering.
A job description can be described as a written statement that describes the duties, responsibilities, required qualifications, and reporting relationships of a particular job. It explains and provides the general overview of the job. In other words, it talks about the nature of the job and the expectation required from the candidate, on a day-to-day basis.
Job descriptions are very important. Therefore great care needs to be taken in creating them and keeping them up to date if you and your employee must succeed in meeting your individual and corporate goals.
