It's great we are talking about creating postings that go far beyond the typical job description. I'm sure you can do that without talking to your hiring manager, but getting them involved pays off in multiple ways.
Below are some questions that will pull out some good information from your hiring managers they might not share otherwise.
It’s especially important to ask your hiring manager these questions to:
a) Get this info in the hiring manager’s words because those are the words that will resonate with your candidates, and
b) Hear how your hiring manager is “selling” the opportunity.
After you’ve written the new exciting job posting, be sure to show it to the hiring manager.
This makes sure it’s accurate. More importantly, it gets them involved and will help them see why the original job description was woefully inadequate.
And it is a wonderful visual demonstration of the expertise you bring to the process.
Let me know how it goes.
