For this assignment, view the Eight Ingredients of an Effective Job Description with Rhonda Abrams video and then construct a two to three page paper that provides a formal job description of a current job as well as analysis of how the job description was created. Find a friend or relative who you can interview and/ or observe them on the job for a brief period of time (an hour or so should be sufficient). List as many responsibilities that the job entails as possible. You may also visit the Bureau of Labor Statistics or O*Net Online websites for additional information on the individual’s position. You will then construct a formal job description based upon your research.
Your assignment must be two to three double-spaced pages in length (excluding title and reference pages) and formatted according to APA guidelines as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center. Include a cover page and reference page in APA format. In addition to your textbook, you must utilize at least one scholarly peer-reviewed sources that has been published within the past five years. Your sources must be cited according to APA format as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center. Your assignment must include an introduction, the job description, an explanation of the process of constructing the job description, and a conclusion.
The formal job description must include a section on job tasks, worker requirements and contextual factors (as listed in Chapter 2 of your course text). Microsoft provides this example of a job description template, which you may use or follow to create your job description.
