This webinar will focus on the fundamentals of job analysis, primarily with regard to a) the planning of job analysis studies and b) the uses of job analysis data. The planning of a thorough job analysis involves answering some foundational questions such as why the job analysis is being conducted, how it will be done, who should be involved, what is at stake, and when and where it should be conducted. The outset of a job analysis needs to start with the “why” – what are the projected outcomes the job analysis needs to serve? In addition to an in-depth discussion of the planning process, we will discuss some of the uses of job analytic data – position descriptions, minimum qualifications, selection assessment development, performance standards, classification – just to name a few! This session is intended for those who are new to the world of job analysis, are on the threshold of developing a job analysis project plan, in the midst of an ongoing job analysis project, or those who would benefit from a refresher on the nuts and bolts of job analytic efforts. Reference, best practices, and additional resources will be provided, and questions and open dialogue are welcome!
