I have this inherent habit of daily reading the newspaper and get restless if by any chance I am not able to do it any day. I feel it is one of my best practices so far as it helps me relate to the world, know what is happening in the society and what are the new trends emerging in the market. Further, it also helps me generate fresh and new ideas for my posts on this blog. So without taking much of your time, let me share what I have for you today.
This news article that I read somehow caught my attention as a) it was like a new thing that I got to know and b) How can I relate it to Human Resource Management (after all we all are HR Managers & we ought to do make connections) . For those of you, who haven’t checked the link here is the brief:
The post talks about professional karaoke jockey who are hired by nightlife establishments (like pubs, discos etc) to motivate the nervous amateurs to sing and keep up the spirit and tempo alive for them. He will even go, meet and encourage people to participate and sing songs for the crowd while they are been played on an instrument.
What was so interesting about it?
Out of the blues, I thought if I am the HR Manager of a famous disco and my boss asks me to hire a professional karaoke jockey, how would his Job Description (JD) look like. For those of you who are new to this HR society and less familiar with the HR jargons, a JD is a document meant for clearly laying out the roles and responsibilities, reporting, qualifications, key skills and abilities etc for a particular position in any organization. Before starting the hiring process, we should have a proper JD in place so that it helps us to understand what all tasks one need to perform and accomplish.
So here is what I thought can form basis for this position. Do let me know in case I have missed anything :)
