by , 06 October 2014
When it comes to recruitment, many companies attract the wrong candidates.

They're so focused on creating a winning job ad that they ignore the basics.

What do we mean by 'basics?'

Well, when recruiting, there's one thing you must do before you even think of putting a job ad together.

Read on to find out what it is so you'll attract the right people.


Here's what you must do before you put a job ad together

 
You must have a job description!
 
That's right.
 
The Practical Guide to Human Resources Management says, if you have a job description of the job you're hiring for, you'll have a clear idea of the minimum skill and experience you require.
 
This means the job ad you put together will show exactly the type of candidate you need for the position and will encourage the right people.
 
Now that you know you need a job description before you even think of putting a job ad together, here's how to develop one if you don't have one.

If you don't have a job description for the position, here's how to develop one

 
It's up to you how long you want your job description to be, there's no set standard.
 
To create your job ad, make sure your job description has the following information:
 
  • Position title;
  • Department;
  • Division;
  • Responsible supervisor;
  • Job purpose;
  • Organisation chart (This should show to whom the employee reports, her peers and her subordinates.);
  • Key performance areas;
  • Tasks; and
  • Skills required.
 
Just ensure you have a job description before you put a job ad together. It's the only way to attract suitably qualified candidates.
