As we embark on a new year, new jobs and hirings that were placed on hold at the end of 2021 are being resuscitated by employers and hiring managers. New positions need a job description, so recruiters can find the suitable talent and the candidate understands the responsibilities. But when obtaining a job req from a client, it’s important to get more than just a cut and paste job description.
A trading partner will not want to work with you if they do not understand the full picture, and it behooves you to give them as much information as possible so they can target the right candidate for the position and your client. You need certain information to be able to “sell” the position to a candidate.
