The Perfect Position Description
Mar 29, 2018

A blank position description questionnaire is provided on the website under the Manager HR Forms section. When completing the position description, base it on your minimum qualifications for the job. Do not create the position description for the perfect candidate. For example, you may want all of your employees to have a minimum education level of high school graduation. However, very few jobs in the United States require a high school diploma. If you are hiring a sales person, they need to have sales skills, be able to read and write, operate a computer, etc. But a high school diploma does not necessarily guarantee these skills. Some positions require college degrees. If you are hiring a CFO, you may want him/her to have a four year degree in finance or accounting. +

Busters who have graduated from college tend to be more interested in their ow career development than in staying with one company. +
