I come across a lot of job descriptions and their quality varies wildly. The descriptions that exist in the UI/UX contract design community are intended to snare the widest pool of talent possible — from a recruiter perspective, the more potential candidates, the more likely the role will be filled. But this often leads to awkward interviews, where it quickly becomes apparent that your skills do not match the role.

This guide from Google Ventures summarises what makes a good job description. Like anything of value, it takes time and craft to prepare but the payoff is more suitable candidates applying for roles.
