Understanding Further The Job DescriptionsUnderstanding Further The Job Descriptions

There's always a point in our mind when we have seen a job description and say "I can do that", knowing we don't have the necessary experience or training to qualify for it. We send in our resumes and then get denied or never hear back from them. This is why companies are getting better with job descriptions as they state exactly what they want in a certain job position.

You need to understand the who, what, where and when of the job description. Who: you should know something about this company. Are they reputable, have they been in business long and would you fit in with this kind of work? What: the duties, responsibilities, qualifications and pay, time, days or nights, they are asking for. Where: know their location whether it is close to your home or within a reasonable driving distance. Where in the company is the position asking you to work; in filing, in mechanical, or in management? When: how soon will the job be available and the date when you will be starting your work?

If you read through a position description and you're asking yourself "I don't know what this job description means", then you should move on. Apparently you don't have the required qualifications for those certain jobs so don't waste your time. Even a poorly written job description would have enough information that an experienced person should understand. Some job descriptions are very brief like the ones you see in a newspaper advertisement. It may be necessary to call them and get the full description. This will be a very important call. If you know that this job fits your qualifications, then this conversation will give you valuable information that you will be able to use in your resume as your key guides. This is recommended for every job you apply for.

Job descriptions may require that you must have a certification, license or training in a specialty, which can lead to further your education. If you are unemployed, this is a great time to get this extra education. Call your local job service and see if they will help paying for the classes you need. Go to a local community college and see what they have to offer. A variety of choices can be made from computer courses, medical transcription, to truck driving, all are in big demand.

Look up for a sample job descriptions for your work experience. See if you can create a job description about you and your work. This will provide you a better understanding of what you should be looking for in a job search and this will help you when you do find that job. You can use this to your advantage though by having the requirements or not wasting too much time on this particular job. You can use the 60% rule, wherein if you have sixty percent experience in the job posting, then you will apply for this job. All you need is a piece of luck and a ton of determination in finding the job that fits you.
