The term job analysis describes the process of obtaining information about jobs. Regardless of how it is collected, it usually includes information about the tasks to be done on the job as well as the personal characteristics (education, experience, specialized training, personality) necessary to do the tasks (Cascio, 2005). Job analysis also can be defined as the systematic study of jobs to identify the observable work activities, tasks, and responsibilities associated with a particular job or group of jobs (University of Minnesota, 2008). I believe that structured questionnaires are appropriate analysis method in this case because it is generally cheaper and quicker to administer than other methods. Questionnaires can be completed off the job, thus avoiding lost productive time. Web-based questionnaires allow analysts to survey large numbers of geographically dispersed job incumbents. On the other hand, the disadvantage of structured questionnaire is that rapport between analyst and respondent is not possible (Cascio, 2005).
