Creating a clear path forward
You hit it right on the head. It feels safe to have the description, but it’s not always indicative of what the job will be like.
It’s about 30% no description to 70% description. I do end up working with managers on the description to get to the meat of what they really want.
Will have to give that other belay a try next time. I can see feeling more comfortable if a person was handling the rope. 😂
Am intrigued by the approach taken to find candidates for a role that doesn't have a description. In some ways, feels far more useful and insightful that seeing the cookie-cutter job descriptions which looks substantive but are, effectively meaningless.
Out of interest, what % of roles you fill are like this versus the % of roles that have a JD?
As for rock climbing, it's more "fun" when it's someone who is belaying you. Especially if they are lighter than you are aren't anchored in ... like my wife. 😆
