In essence, before you set out to look for an employee, you must be clear about the skill, talent and overall qualifications you’re looking for. If not, you will have to sift through many applications because even prospects who are not skilled for that type of job would apply. On the other hand, when you are sure about what skills you’re looking out and clearly detail such skills and qualifications, it will help streamline who applies to your job opening.
1: Your Qualification List Should be Detailed
Here’s a typical example of the detailed job description: “The candidate must have a first honor bachelor degree in accountancy and must be a member of a relevant professional organization, and must have experience in deploying relevant accounting software such as GnuCash or Adempiere.
2: Make a Further Description
In order to really narrow the number of applicants for the job, you should describe the job requirements further. For instance, you should detail the kind of experience you seek both in terms of a number of years and skills. Here’s an example; Our company is looking for a qualified accountant with 3 or more years experience — someone who has also trained others in previous organizations. Don’t write the general form of job description that usually attracts just any applicant.
3: Include Detailed Job Descriptions
It’s also good to detail what the prospect is expected to do when hired. You should go beyond a basic job description to include a detailed list of responsibilities that a prospect will handle. This way, qualified candidates may even go a step further to provide solid evidence and proofs of handling such job responsibilities in time past. It’s also helpful to include information related to the culture of your company.
Here’s an example of detailed job responsibilities: “Our company is looking for an enthusiastic person to write monthly reports, process invoices, and manage our accounts. You will work with the accounting department of our company and will deal directly with our clients. Also, you will be responsible for training our new hires and creating a work schedule for them”.
