Job Description

A job description includes an overview, role summary, catalog of responsibilities, and the qualifications and experience required for a particular role. It also defines the soft skills and business skills required for success in the role. Job descriptions should be fine-tuned and reviewed with stakeholders, such as senior management, to gain consensus on the requirements of a specific position to support a company’s work, behavioral and business requirements.
