With the economy showing signs of promise, businesses are beginning to seriously consider creating new positions and hiring new employees to fill old vacancies. Info-Tech Research Group has uploaded a job description template. A clear and complete job description is essential to confirming employee accountabilities, setting work direction, and creating a platform for future career progression. This template is designed to allow complete documentation of the characteristics, responsibilities, and requirements for a given job position in IT.
Robert Half Technology has also uploaded a glossary of IT job descriptions in the Knowledge Network. Information in that booklet was derived from the thousands of full-time and project placements made through Robert Half Technology locations and the market knowledge of their account executives. While the glossary provides an overview of typical responsibilities and skill requirements, it's important to note that variations do occur based on company size, industry, local employment conditions and other factors.
Don't forget about the dozens of sample job descriptions available in the Knowledge Network. Below are links to a handful of them.
