I’ve spent a significant portion of my morning writing a job description. Wow, I had forgotten how much I don’t enjoy this part of the process of officially expanding the team.
The pressure of finding the right words to say what I mean so that the right people apply and of not saying anything stupid is enough to make my head hurt.
Add the complexity of a Personnel Requisition Form that doesn’t have spell check and I’m about over the edge. I know, I know: “write it in Word and paste it into the form.”
Still, I’m committed to the process of defining a role and finding the right person to fill that role.
I’m going to go look at my own job description and see if writing job descriptions is part of my job. Of course, I think I helped write that one, too. What was I thinking?!
