What should be included in a job description?

We have found that short but concise job descriptions help increase user applications.

Here are some best practices to keep in mind when creating your job post:

  • Provide a brief description of your business 

  • Describe the job you are needing to fill

  • Specific requirements of a worker. For example: specific dress code, ability to lift a certain amount of weight, food handler's card required etc.

  • Anything the worker may need to prepare before showing up to the job. Expected start time, hours each day, or maybe Watch Video tutorial, Know How to ...

  • Any specific tools or documents that the Worker may need to bring: Personal laptop, certain clothing/shoes/dress code, know how to operate certain machinery, or a specific certificate.

  • Instructions for what to do when they arrive: where to park, who to contact upon arrival etc.

  • If a Background Check, Drug Screening or MVR is required, the type of screens needed would be helpful. If this is a 1099 Tax Type job, the Worker can obtain the BGC within their Profile and will pay for the cost of the check on their own. If this is a W-2 Tax Type, any specific BGC or screens that are needed will need to be communicated to the Employer of Record before the Worker can be approved to start work. 

Here's an example of what your job description should look like:
