It is very important that the employee knows what he has to do because if he does not know how to do a certain thing this will leas to his lack of interest on the job and thus to the disappointment of the boss. It is very important that you write what abilities you require in the job description if you want to find the right person. Even if he/she is a great person with similar interests you can’t hire them as mechanical engineers if their abilities are in wedding planning, or some other unrelated realm.
