A job description is a list of the general tasks or functions and responsibilities of a position. Typically, it also includes to whom the position reports and specifications such as the qualifications needed by the person in the job, salary range for the position, and more. A job description is usually developed by conducting a job analysis, which includes examining the tasks and sequences of tasks necessary to perform the job. The analysis looks at the areas of knowledge and skills needed by the job.
