Title: Content, Values, And Environment: Applicant Reactions To Job Descriptions
Author: Toliver, Adria D.
Abstract: The research on job descriptions is limited and information regarding applicant reactions to job descriptions is even scarcer . The current research hypothesized that after reading job content information , an applicant's decision to apply or not apply for a job rests on the organizational values and work environment information included in the job description . Participants were presented with four job descriptions with varying levels of job content , organizational values , and work environment information and were asked to indicate which description would make them most and least likely to apply for the job and why . The results showed that the job description containing information on job content , organizational values , and the work environment (job description #4 ) was most favored among participants , receiving the highest ratings compared to job descriptions #1 and #2 , while the job description containing only job content information (job description #1 ) was least favored among participants , receiving the lowest ratings compared to the remaining three job descriptions . Other findings are discussed as well as the limitations of the study and future directions .
