Who is responsible for writing a job description in an organization? Is it the hiring manager? The HR department? The recruiter? All of the above? If all of the above, who drives that collaboration? Job descriptions are really a form of marketing for your business, but instead of attracting customers, you're attracting talent. Yet, job descriptions rarely receive the level of attention and resources allocated to marketing.
Thoughtfully constructed job descriptions attract the right talent, set expectations for the role, and provide clarity on what success looks like in the role. Poorly written job descriptions drag out the talent acquisition cycle and drive up costs.
