Job description 

When advertising their jobs, many organisations offer to send out a job description to potential employees.

A job description will give you a better idea about the job on offer, the duties that it covers and what is expected of you to do the job successfully.

It's a good idea to obtain a copy of a job description if they are available, because it helps you to prepare for an interview. It will often give you some good clues about how to respond to any questions.

Even if a job description is not mentioned in the job advertisement, give the employer a call and see if there is any information that they can send you about the company or the job.
