Written Assignment #1: Job Analysis – Due Week 3

To create a new job description for a new position in the human resource department. This will require conducting a job analysis and then writing a job description. The job will provide administrative support to a 10-employee HR office. The incumbent will act as the department receptionist. Some duties include maintaining personnel files, performing administrative functions for the office personnel, assisting the public and employees with personnel questions, following company policy when dispensing information, reviewing and processing forms for personnel changes, monitoring staff time and payroll items, handling the HR director’s calendar, handling office mail, filing, typing as requested, answering phones, and other duties as assigned.




Task Statements

Complete the Task Statement template posted in Doc Sharing. Be sure the task statements are specific, time determined, and measurable. The task statements are single task items.

KSA Statements

Complete the KSA Statement template posted in Doc Sharing. You will take each Task Statement and identify the KSA needed for each task. This helps determine the job level and required job skills.


Job Description

From the Task and KSA Statement templates, write a viable job description with the following sections:

  • Job Summary
  • Essential Job Functions
  • Required Knowledge, Skills, and Abilities
  • Education, Experience, Certifications, and Licenses
  • Environmental Factors and Conditions/Physical Requirements
  • Equipment and Tools Utilized
