Job Description and Recruitment Plan
The goal of the term project and related topic assignments is for you to demonstrate your knowledge of the HR systems and process being explored. Once you are proficient, you can apply the process to any position. Select a Job Position [Job Title] to use for this term project. You are encouraged to select the job title or position you plan to apply for next in your career. You may also use your current position. The selected position you choose will be used throughout the term project.
Term Project Part 1 Instructions: After reading the textbook chapters and viewing the videos provided, write a research paper about creating a job description and establishing a recruitment plan.
Begin the research paper by defining and discussing the purpose and need for a Job Description. How is it developed? What is it used for? What other HR processes is it applied and used in? Visuals such as charts, graphs, and tables may be useful here.
Next, for the Job Position [Job Title] selected, create a Performance Chart/Outline- with the following items presented:
Routine tasks: tasks that you would expect the person in this position to perform on a regular basis.
Adaptive tasks: ways you would expect the person in this position to perform tasks when situations/circumstances change. The changes might be considered contingencies.
Creative tasks: ways you would expect the person in this position to perform tasks when routine and adaptive methods are not sufficient or will not work.
Then, from the information presented in your performance chart and real examples you have found for the chosen position, create a job description for the position that will be useful for all parts of the employee life cycle. To structure your Job Description, please use the following Job Description Template (doc)
The job description should include:
Job duties and responsibilities
Begin this section of the paper by defining and discussing the purpose and need for a recruitment plan. How is it developed? How do we make sure it complies with EEOC standards? How is the Job description applied in the recruiting candidates? Again, visuals are helpful here.
Next, for the Job Position [Job Title] selected, identify the two most appropriate recruitment sources for this position and provide a rationale for the choices. Conduct a Google search for the job title in support for the recruitment sources under consideration. Create a chart of the results. How many different types of recruitment sources can be identified? Consider the use of a third party. How could companies like ZipRecruiter, Indeed, and Workday help a firm with the recruitment function?
Your research paper includes the report about your job description and the information of your recruitment plan. Use each topic area as a section header in the paper. Support your claims using a minimum of (5) credible sources, in addition to the textbook. In-text citations and references must be included in your paper. Use APA formatting guidelines. Charts, exhibits, tables, and visual representations of HR systems and processes are encouraged to enhance your claims.
