Bennett, Roger
Journal of Vocational Education & Training, v54 n4 p457-75 2002
Content analysis of 1,000 job ads in marketing, management, finance, and human resource management showed that ads were significantly more likely to ask for specific personal skills relevant to the job category. A survey of 170 companies that placed the ads indicated their motives for stipulating personal skills; two-thirds conducted formal job analyses. (Contains 37 references.) (SK)
