Worker Oriented Job Analysis

Choose a past or present job and conduct either a job-oriented or person-oriented job analysis, using a methodology of your choice.

Method: Please state which methodology you chose to base your analysis on, and explain how you approached your analysis. It may not be possible to carry out each step of the formal approach and you should adapt where necessary, however you should also explain what you would have done if you had all resources available.

Results: You should provide a formal section reflecting your findings from the job analysis. The specific elements you include should reflect your methodology. For example, if you chose to do your analysis using the Job Components Inventory, you should include "use of tools and equipment" as part of your results.

Dear Student,

Hi and thank you for using Brainmass. The solution below should get you started. This task is straightforward. Your professor is asking you to showcase that you understand the process behind job analysis. I suggest using this simple example:

1. About the Task & your process- 100 words
2. The Analysis - 200 words
3. Reflection - 100 words

As your professor is saying, not all elements of the process can be covered as it is subjective to the job and the method. I have utilized a familiar job using one of these methods as an example. You should use a job familiar to you when putting together your material. You can also use the listed resources to further explore the topic. Just let me know via the feedback section if you need further clarification. All the best with your studies.
