In this unit, you have seen that one critical tool for maintaining a legal staffing system is the job analysis. The work product of a job analysis, which most of us see, is a job description.
Based on your current position or a job that you have previously applied for, consider the information from the Uniform Guidelines on Employee Selection Procedures (UGESP), linked in the Resources, to write a post that includes the following informationDid the job have a job analysis or job description?
Was this document in writing? If not how was it transmitted to you?
Was the document current? If so, describe how you knew the job description was up to date. If not, how did you know it was out of date and was the “old” information critical to successful job performance?
Which of the three methods described in the UGESP (criterion, content, or construct validity) would you use to update this job analysis or job description? Justify your answer.
Would using O*Net Online be a better way generate this job analysis? Describe the specific job title that you researched in O*Net and what would or would not be better about using O*Net.
