The first step in hiring a qualified park and recreation professional to add to your team, is creating an accurate job description to use when posting a new position opening on the NRPA Career Center. The process of writing a job description requires an understanding of the job’s responsibilities, duties, and qualifications. To attract responses from the most capable candidates, make sure that the job description paints a clear picture of the skills required for the position.
