Job Description (JD)
A job description is a document describing the duties, responsibilities, and requirements of a particular job position. In addition to providing an overview of what the job entails, what qualifications are required, and what employer expectations are for the employee, it outlines the employer’s expectations for the employee.
A job description is an essential tool for recruiting, selecting, and managing employees. In addition to identifying the necessary skills and qualifications for a particular job, they develop performance expectations and establish evaluation criteria for employees.
