Job descriptions are soooo yesterday.    

They do not provide strategic information. For example, you would use the same job description for a sales person opening in Cleveland and Dallas.  Yet, because of market size, managerial style, competition, etc., they are vastly different jobs.  Today’s managers need MORE STRATEGIC information before making their hiring decisions.

Job descriptions are important – but – they provide only  basic information. i.e., duties, responsibilities, travel etc.  Similarly, most interview evaluation forms are too general. i.e., asked good questions, seemed prepared, etc.

3 NEW strategic hiring forms:

The forms below provide the manager’s strategic thoughts about their current team, the open position, and some self-reflection PRIOR to beginning the hiring process.   Time Needed:  Approximately 15 minutes to complete.

  • More employees that fit your culture fit, not simply the job
  • develop documentation – in writing and with signatures – on the strategic needs of a hiring decision
  • develop more ownership and accountability for the hiring decisions
  • develop an annually review for the hiring “hits and misses” with an eye to constantly improve the process      

1. Job Outlook™ Form


Interview Evaluation Form

3. Hiring Decision Form

Strategic information  added-on to your existing job description.   Hiring managers take 15 minutes to fill out the form.  They review their existing team. Then they detail the job position needs – includes biggest challenges, future needs, the company’s Hiring Statement, 1, 3, 6 month expectation goals, and more.  Form is signed by the manager before the hiring process begins.

Job Outlook Forms Sample

Drive your job description and the strategic information from the Job Outlook form through all interviews. This form includes reminders on what a manager can and cannot say during an interview.  It also includes this question: As the hiring manager, what will you do to help this person succeed – quickly?  The form is signed.

Competitive Hiring

Similar to the Interview Evaluation form. Used when you want to compare 2 or more qualified candidates.
