What should I include in a job description?

A job description summarizes the general duties and responsibilities for a role. It may include any required skills, qualifications, and certifications. An ideal description is concise–including only the most important information–while also providing enough context for an applicant to understand the position.

For a list of sample job descriptions by job title, see example job descriptions.

All job postings must follow the job posting guidelines. See SimplyHired Job Posting Guidelines.
