#1 – The First Step to Hiring Your “Emily” – Writing the Job Description


Putting a job description together seems simple enough, right?  But if not fashioned precisely, you may find yourself buried waist deep with resumes from candidates that don’t hit the mark, especially in this economy.  Thus, the first step is crucial in communicating to prospective candidates exactly what you’re looking for.  (And keep in mind that must-have skills usually don’t include picking up your dry cleaning and walking your dog!)
