Research This form, also known as the job description, is completed by each department for all existing and all newly created staff positions. Its purpose is to identify the essential functions of a position and the minimum qualifications required for the position. Review of this form by Staff Employment helps ensure that stated qualifications are job-related and objective. Special attention is given to minimum requirements for a position matching those on the PARF. The questionnaire is also used in screening applications during the hiring process. All sections are to be completed, including the organizational chart and the physical demands section. Job descriptions are maintained by the Staff Employment Office. If a position becomes vacant that does not have a current job description on file (within the last three years), the department will be required to complete one before an interview can take place. These forms are available online.
