Overview/Description
Finding the right person for the job takes a lot of work, and much of this work is done prior to the actual interview. Before you can even start looking for candidates, you need to create a description of the job you want to fill. How would you interview someone if you didn't know the responsibilities required for the job? A good job description, based on a thorough job analysis, will help you evaluate applicants' resumes effectively. You'll be able to compare the resumes against the requirements in the description and make effective decisions about who should be interviewed. This course describes the key components of job descriptions and how to use them to screen resumes. You'll also learn how to identify red-flag issues in the resumes you are screening.

Target Audience
Anyone who wants to develop or refine their hiring and interviewing skills
