We talk a lot about the poor quality of job postings with many just being a cut and paste version of the internal job description. However, we should also be talking about the poor quality of job descriptions themselves, many of which are put together in haste with little thought round impact and outcome.

To give us a different perspective, my guest this week is Kate Leto, a well-known product management and transformation consultant. As well as sharing her thoughts on job descriptions, Kate also offers insights on how thinking like a product manager could help improve the talent acquisition process.

In the interview, we discuss:

  • The importance of recruiting for emotional intelligence
  • Person organizational fit
  • Using four simple questions to create effective job descriptions
