So when constructing your job description ask yourself these questions?
- Is the company aggressive in meeting its goals or works in a slower, laid-back pace?
- Is it a casual-atmosphere company or more corporate? Is it particular about office timings?
- Is the team huge? What is the contribution of each member in the team? Is there a learning scope in the department?
- What personality type are you looking for? Who will help you meet your goals while still adhering to your company’s culture and philosophy?
Oftentimes the writing style and word choice says just as much about your company as does the content. A description for an accounting firm should look very different than that of a new web development company. In the end, the goal is to attract and retain people who are right for the position and the company, so don’t be afraid to use your job description as a reflection of your corporate culture.
