Why is position classification more “art” than “science?”
- What is the Classification Act of 1923? 1949?
- What is the distinction between job descriptions and position descriptions?
- Using the guidelines starting on page 189, write an abbreviated (no more than one paragraph per section) job description for a management level grant writer of a non-profit organization. This position will oversee 3 other grant writers and is expected to secure several millions of dollars in grant funding a year. You can be creative here just as long as you cover the four areas of a job description.
- Once your job description is written, identify what you would consider the key factors associated with this job. What would be the point range you would give these factors and how would this position score?
