Before you start looking for the perfect candidate, it is a good idea to take some time and outline what the role you are hiring for entails and what the expectations are. A job description is the most typical way to document this information.
What is a Job Description? Why do I need to create one?
A job description is a document that describes the tasks, duties, responsibilities, and expectations of a job. Having this information documented will help you answer important questions through the hiring process and provide candidates with a picture of the job’s day-to-day format. The job description will also help managers and employees gauge performance and provide a starting point for performance expectations.
