Job Description and Job Specification are two types of documents prepared by companies when they are recruiting new employees. The job description is not the same as the job specification. The major difference between the two can be explained in relation to their definition. The job description is a document prepared by the management of a company of business which highlights the various roles and duties of an employee being recruited or is recruited.

The job description is written to clearly show the nature of the task, responsibility, and the expected relationship with other departments or jobs in the company. Job specification, on the other hand, is a document prepared by a company which shows the various requirements that an applicant must have before he/she can be employed. The educational qualifications, professional experiences, and required skills are stated in the document. Job specification will enable the human resources management to screen all the applicants applying for a job position properly
