Think like an applicant
Most glaring errors can be avoided if you remember to look at the job description the way a potential job candidate will look at it. If you were applying for this job, what would you want to know?
It can be difficult for high-level executives to put themselves in the place of someone who is job searching, particularly if the job is for a position that they have never perform them selves or it has been a long time since they themselves were in the job market. This is why most company owners need help writing job descriptions. They are really good at explaining the company Mission statement and the corporate culture, but they may not Excel at talking about the day-to-day operations of mid or junior level employees. Something is this owners really stay in touch with every level of employees but most become so busy and successful that they cannot readily communicate the the day-to-day operations of entry-level or mid level employees of the company. Generally, job descriptions written by high-level executives are more cerebral and company mission statement oriented then they are practical (with the basic details that someone really looking for a job who has the exact qualifications they are looking for would actually need to know).
This is why it is important to do your research. You need to get the facts and find out exactly what this new employee will be responsible for. It can be tempting to throw out a vague job description and then firm things up as you begin to interview. If you do this you make the mistake of getting a job description posted faster but paying a high price later on; you will end up needing to take much more time to interview your candidates and sort through potential hires later on if you have not communicated is sensual details in the job description. Also if the job description is too long then qualified applicants who are busy and successful already may not take the time to read it or apply.
