Let us understand first the meaning of job description.
A job is a collection of tasks and responsibilities that an employee is responsible to conduct. Job descriptions are lists of the general tasks, or functions, and responsibilities of a position. Typically, they also include to whom the position reports, specifications such as the qualifications needed by the person in the job, salary range for the position, etc. (Managementhelp, 2009)
Job descriptions are usually developed by conducting a job analysis, which includes examining the tasks and sequences of tasks necessary to perform the job. Job description consists of two areas -- a summary of the job's responsibilities, and a list of the key duties that will be performed. Hence it helps in choosing the best candidate from a pool of applicants. (Managementhelp, 2009)
