Why is a detailed job description important when recruiting new employees?

Posted online

Having a written and detailed job description can make the process of filling a position easier and is key to attracting the right employees. Provide a clear, consistent understanding of a job position and communicate the benefit and purpose of the position. Job descriptions also allow hiring managers to better evaluate a candidate’s attributes versus the position.
