Prepare a Job Description

Key Points

  • While no law requires an employer to have written job descriptions, these descriptions prove useful in recruitment, selection and other ways.
  • A good job description should provide clarity for applicants by describing the essential duties of the position. Most jobs have between eight and 12.
  • Descriptions should be reviewed regularly to ensure they do not fall out of date and that they comply with antidiscrimination laws.
