How to Write a Tech Job Description
A well-written job post helps you attract not only good candidates, but the right candidates.
In recent weeks, Knowledge Network contributors G.1440 and Info-Tech Research Group have uploaded several job descriptions that identify critical skills and responsibilities for IT professionals working in software development and networking:
- Job Description: .NET Developer - The .NET Developer designs and builds applications using the Microsoft .NET Web services development framework.
- Job Description: Application Development Manager - The Application Development Manager's role is to plan, coordinate and supervise all activities related to the design, development and implementation of organizational information systems and software applications.
- Job Description: Network Security Engineer - The Network Engineer/ Security Engineer will be responsible for the implementation, maintenance and integration of the corporate WAN, LAN and server architecture.

- Job Description: Network Operation Administrator - The Network Operation Administrator will be responsible for providing support, monitoring and maintaining in-house applications, including the administration of Microsoft System Center Operations Manager (SCOM).
If you're looking to fill these roles, use these job descriptions as templates for finding candidates that fit your business' needs. Poorly constructed or incomplete job posts put you at risk for attracting prospective employees that don't measure up during the screening process, wasting your time and theirs in fruitless interviews.
