What is a Job Description?

A job description is a summary of the most important features of a job — it should describe and focus on the job itself and not on any specific individual who might fill the job. Job descriptions have a number of uses including:

✓ Developing a job-worth hierarchy
✓ Identifying performance standards
✓ Organizational design uses
✓ Salary survey exchanges

  ✓ Legal defenses
✓ Job assignments
✓ Selection/recruitment
✓ Establishing career paths/succession planning
