The task of writing a job description is almost equivalent to writing a cover letter by a job seeker. In order to patronize the reader to read your piece of writing, you should be concise, pragmatic, functional and accurate in whatever you write.
People look for descriptions that provide them with detailed information about that particular field or profession that a potential employee should know and are looking for. Job descriptions become attractive when the job objective, purpose, level and nature of the job is clearly stated.
The listing of the job duties and responsibilities in your job description must cover up the major part of your writing. You should start with the most significant task and end up with the minor job responsibilities. This part of the description should cover up the maximum time of the reader.
Every job position requires a certain amount of education and qualification. A job description in this case should also efficiently summarize the job specifications, the educational requirements, experience, knowledge, skills and salaries that are expected.
Job location, equipments that should be used in the job and the status and relationship of that particular position in comparison to the others in the organization should also be jotted down. Job descriptions should be flexible, with full of explanatory phrases, should be written in the present tense, should be concise and should avoid using words with multiple connotations.
