In the tables below I will be evaluating the usefulness of the documentation used in the interview pack for a chosen organisation used in the interview process. I will talking about the strengths, weaknesses, purpose and giving it a ranking and justification.
| Job Description
Purpose | This informs the applicant about the job. It includes the position of the job, location and contact information. Different organisations will have their own particular information that they will include however there are set keys facts that must be included. |
Strength | It allows potential candidates to compare themselves with the job description and see if they are suitable for the job.

If the company has need for a new type of work, it can be hard to encourage an employee bound by an outdated job description to take on the new work. Updating job descriptions can be time-consuming since they need to be updated every time a change is made. This is particularly a problem in fast-paced industries that deal with volatile markets or technology. |
Ranking | 5 |
