Internet and IT Job Descriptions 2023 Version Released by Janco
December 12, 2022 (PRLEAP.COM) Business News(Park City UT) - Janco Associates has just completed a review of job descriptions for IT professionals at 174 organizations and found that only 34% of the organizations have updated job descriptions for all their IT professionals. During the study, Janco updated its Internet and IT Job Descriptions and is releasing the 2023 Version. IT job descriptions provide CIOs. IT Managers, and HR professionals a baseline they can use to better manage the recruiting, compensation, and staff performance analysis.
The CEO of Janco, Victor Janulaitis said, "It is important for the success of an IT organization that it find and hire individuals who can have the right skills and can successfully utilize them. In this study, we identified several common reasons why new hires do not work out: job responsibilities not clearly defined, different expectations for new hires and the enterprise; and cultural mismatch. Janco's job descriptions are a tool that provides a proven baseline to address these issues."
IT Job Descriptions are continually updated to reflect the latest compliance and new technology requirements. The Internet and IT Position Descriptions HandiGuide is over 900 pages; includes sample organization charts, a job progression matrix, and 324 Internet and IT job descriptions. The book addresses all mandated requirements, including the ADA, and is in an easy-to-use format.
The CEO added, "We found that 47% of all job descriptions needed to be created or updated when a position had to be filled. Also, only 28%of the organizations we surveyed had updated their job descriptions, pay grades, or job classifications in the past 12 months." Janulaitis also said, "We discovered that employers now are starting to depend on social media to verify key information that candidates put on their resumes. Janco found in the review of 450 hires at 78 companies, the verification processes used by employers for information on candidates varied significantly. Before job offers are made employers check references - 46%; depended on the candidate's answers during the interview process - 30%; evaluated the candidate's social media persona - 26%; contacted employers/schools listed on resumes 17%; asked follow-up questions of candidates after the primary interview - 6%; implemented probational hiring - 4%; reviewed samples of candidate's work 2%; and tested the candidate during the hiring process 2%."
With that in mind, Janco has just updated and released its 2023 version of the Internet and IT Job Descriptions HandiGuide. It contains 324 full job descriptions, tools for creating job descriptions for a new position, and forms to help in the life cycle of an employee's employment.
