Step 1:  The Job 

Each job announcement or job advertisement may include any combination of a description of the job, job applicant qualifications and desired qualities.  The description, qualifications and desired qualities are the keys to preparing for the interview.  On a job announcement or job advertisement, these keys may be found under headings such as: 

  • Position
  • Qualifications
  • The Duties
  • The Requirements

Here's a description for a supervisory job:

    "The ideal candidate will possess excellent leadership, managerial, communications and inter-personal skills. The candidate should be a self-starter, team player, as well as promote teamwork among others, have a strong customer orientation, is approachable, and effective and creative problem solver, and establishes and maintains effective working relationships . . ."

The underlined words are the knowledge, skills and abilities (KSA's) that we’ve identified for this job.

Knowledge - information applied directly to the performance of a function.  For example, supervision is a knowledge.

Skills - learned acts.  In the example above, we have managerial skills.  Other examples include operating a personal computer, using a firearm or operating a backhoe.

Abilities - performance of behavior that you can see.  In the description above, communications is an ability.
