The purpose of different documents used in the selection and recruitment process This report identifies the purpose of five documents used in the selection and recruitment process, the benefits and limitations of these documents and how to improve them. 1. Job description A job description is important for the employer to give information about what the job involves by stating the purpose of the job, what responsibilities the employee will have and what duties needs to be done. The job description also includes what level of qualification and experience the job requires and when the description was issued. The benefits of a job description are:  If the job description is well-written and accurate it helps the company to attract individuals with the right qualifications which will make the selection and recruitment process faster.  If the job description includes a good explanation of the job role it will prepare a potential employee what will be expected from him or her.  As it will list the minimum requirements only people with the right qualifications and experience will apply and this will save the company time. The limitations are: - Due to a job description an employee may be not as flexible and might refuse to do other tasks that were not listened in the job description. A job description usually just summarizes the tasks that have to be done and this might be very narrow, this will make a potential employee assume that there is not a lot to do in this job and then might not expect the full responsibilities of a job and then might quit for this reason. This will limit the productivity of staff and employees. - As a job changes regularly the job description has to be updated, this means the employer or manager has to spend a lot of time updating the job description instead of working on a profitable task.
