How job descriptions undermine the hiring process
from Fast Company
Many of us think of ability, talent, and potential as essential qualities — things people either possess or don't. We tend to imagine that circumstances might have some minor influence over someone's abilities but surely don’t determine or create them. That essentialist thinking is pretty misguided, but it's still the guiding principle for many companies' hiring practices —most of which are still set up to ignore the contexts in which people actually work. For evidence, look no further than the average job description.
