I had an idea, and i have not done any competative research yet so i dont know if something already exsists or not.
One thing i notice when i read descriptions for jobs is it seems employers dont even know what they are looking for. I see this in all kinds of industry but using ux for example, is. Descriptions for ux designers where they want someone that knows research, design, and development. We all know unicorns exsist but most of them time employers dont even realize that is what they are looking for or why it can be a bad thing. In ux alone, there is no possible way one person can handle strategy, reseaching, analysing, prototyping, designing, developing and iteration feasibly unless they are putting in 70 hours a week. Yet i see these postings all the time.
Heck, i talked to a tecruiter that was interviewing for a ux position and i had to explain to her what a ux person does… She had no idea.
My idea is a website or forum where wmployers can go to get feedback and post their job descriptions and get feedback on if they are
A. Really neededing what they are asking for
B. Getting educated on what exactly they should be asking
C. Helping them write proper job requirment descriptions
D. Warning them when they are asking for a unicorn and the drawbacks of such
E. Giving the, an idea of proper salries for what they are asking for. (For example if they only have a budget of 60k then they should be asking for jr. Etc.)
armed with this knowledge they can then post the job they are looking for.
