It All Starts With The Job Description – Know the 6 Key Parts of a Job Description

Too often, writing a job description sounds a lot like ordering items off a menu, “I’ll take one CPA with 5 years of experience and a top tier school on the side.”  This checklist approach of making a list of everything candidates should have in experience, skills, GPA leads to an ineffective approach to hiring. 

Ok, I get it – who has time to write a crafty, attractive job description, right?  Truthfully, it doesn’t have to take a lot of time, but putting just a bit more thought into it can make a significant difference in the candidates you attract.  In case you haven’t heard, it’s a candidate’s market.  They pick the employer even more than the employer picks them nowadays, and the job description is your sales ad. 

We’ve put together a quick overview of the 6 key parts of a job description and how you can design them to help you find the best candidates.
