Job Descriptions

Seth Godin wrote a post today that challenges us to think about how a job description is written/presented. In particular I emphasize his closing remark.

The flipside of the situation is also true: I frequently see job descriptions that are basically impossible to fill as specced. If you can't think of a single individual that you've worked with over your entire career that would be the perfect fit for this job--and work on the terms you're prepared to offer--there's something wrong with the job you hope to fill. Wishing is not a strategy.

Asking for a decade of project experience with Revit MEP is an example of making an impossible demand, it only became a reality in 2006.
