What is a Job Description?

A job description refers to a document uploaded either to a job posting site or a company’s careers page to describe a role that the company needs to fill. The job description sets out what the role requires of the candidate and the skills and education they need to possess. It can also provide working conditions, salary and the designation of the person that the role would report to. Writing a job description can be a tedious task, particularly when multiple versions need to be written out. Using job description templates can cut down on this time-intensive task.
