Dealing with a job description/advert that is uninformative, by Matthew Coppola

It can be rather frustrating when an employer puts out a job description or advertisement and it isn’t clear. There is not much to go by in terms of information about the job, what is expected and what will be involved.

So, faced with this kind of situation, what can the job seeker do to deal with this?

There are a couple of options:

  • Contact the employer/recruiter for a friendly, brief call if appropriate, to find out more about the role.
  • Research similar positions and look at what would be involved to give you a better idea.
  • If you do apply for the role and then invited in for an interview (this is where interview coaching helps) that will give you the opportunity to ask more about the job.


Are you keen to apply for a job that has a set of key selection criteria to address, and you require assistance?
