Job Analysis is an important activity in Human Resource Management. The information generated from a job analysis process provide the basis for other important HR activities such as HR Planning, Recruitment, Selection, Performance Appraisal, Training and Development, Rewards and Benefits, etc. As such, this assignment is an opportunity for students to capture a good understanding of the subject by undertaking a practical job analysis in addition to the formal lecture and tutorial discussions.

2. Make an appointment for an interview or a survey with the holder of the designated position (job), immediate supervisor or manager. It will require a Job Analysis template for an interview or a Job Analysis questionnaire for a survey.

4. Use your Job Analysis tools to conduct a detailed and thorough Job Analysis.
