A job description is the window for candidates to look into.  It tells us what we need to know about the position, what the skills are and what the responsibilities are.

As a hiring manager, writing a job description can sometimes seem like a waste of time when you don’t have enough time in the day to do all the work you need to do, but you also need to hire someone to help with all of the work you need to do.

This dilemma is not unusual, can’t find the time to get a job description out there but still need more help.

When you are writing your job description, block out time so that you can create it in a clear, precise way.  Job descriptions that are vague will get you candidates, but will also end up wasting some of your time reviewing resumes if you don’t have exactly what you are looking for.

In you job description, put in the top 4-5 skills that are required, this will help you drill down resumes by looking for those skills.  This will also help candidates who may want to apply but may not have all of the skills you are looking for.

This is also a tremendous help with recruiters to allow them to filter out candidates that don’t meet your top required skills.

In the end, take a little extra time to write your job description, it will eliminate a lot of wasted time in the long run.
