The job profile should sell the position and your company or agency through pictures and detailed information to attract professional candidates. Once a profile is developed, it can be used again and again, with slight changes for different types of positions. The profile will let candidates know what is expected and answer many of their questions, as well as screen candidates who don’t have the qualification and experience to handle the position as described.
The Profile should include at the minimum:
- description of agency
- description/financial information of organization
- description of department
- job description, job qualifications, challenges facing position
- mission statement
- positive programs or accomplishments
A job profile can also be used for entry level positions without the financial information and short summaries of the information listed above.
