No that is not what I am looking for ... Several months ago I
stumbled across an online site that had free job description writing
abilities ... Long story on how I lost the link to that site ...
Anyway to write a Job Description on this site; you make a choice of
options on several web pages. Once you finish the options then you
submit them and it generates the full job description (which you can
save). See sample below for a Software Engineer (Some fields changed
from original for privacy sake) that was generated.
