I wrote recently about The Top 10 Problems TA Leaders Tell Me About. Job Descriptions was the #1 category.

Note: Check out our free Job Descriptions Guide — it tells you everything we know about JDs, job ads and the like! And, for more tips on writing job descriptions, check out How to Write a Job Description — Best Practices & Examples.

This week I’m sharing the specific problems within job descriptions that TA leaders reach out to me about.

Here they are:

Top 15 Job Description Problems

There are 15 topics total. If you break them down they really fall into 3 main categories:

  • They want better-looking job descriptions (9 of the top 15)
  • They want more effective job descriptions (3 of the top 15)
  • They want the job description process to be faster for both candidates and recruiters (3 of the top 15)

Prettier, more effective and faster job descriptions — that makes sense!

Why I wrote this article — The Ongig team and I are passionate about job descriptions and try to share any data we’ve got that perhaps you don’t. We are actively working to solve problems related to all of these JD topics.

If you’d like to see any other data about job descriptions or related topics, please comment below. Thanks for reading!
