Job Analysis

Prior to beginning work on this assignment, review this week’s readings and Weekly Lecture.

Taking information shared during an interview, observation, or questionnaire and evaluating that data to prepare a job analysis requires knowledge and skill. An accurate job analysis is critical for a job description to be reliable and useful. Refer to the Position Questionnaire found in the Week 1 – Discussion Forum 1.
