Part I: Preparation > Understanding the Position Description

Chapter 3. Understanding the Position Description

Most organizations have a written job description for each advertised position and are more than willing to send one prior to an interview. Standards vary, but a typical description will include the basic job function and its dimensions, plus it will outline whether the job involves supervision of others, travel, key accountabilities and responsibilities, education and experience requirements, the physical location and work environment, and other special skills, certifications, and abilities.

Use information in the job description to identify employer requirements. As an example, look at this Basic Function section of a formal job description for a mechanical engineer.
