HRA 549 Recruitment, Selection Placeme

Module 2 Assignment 2

Now it is time to make the theoretical more applied. This one may require some pre-planning, so be sure to get started on it as early as possible. For this project, you may choose to work alone or collaborate with up to 2 peers.

Contact a local movie theater.** Conduct a formal job analysis on any ONE of the following job titles (or another similar job title): Usher, Concessionist, Box Office Cashier, Server, Bartender, Projectionist, Assistant Manager, Manager, Regional Director, etc.

NOTE: YOU MAY NOT CHOOSE YOUR OWN JOB TITLE!!!

**If you are absolutely unable to use a movie theater for this assignment, you may substitute a job from a different sector of the service industry, such as a restaurant or commercial bank.

Submit a brief narrative report (expect to take 2-3 pages, double spaced) addressing the following:

Which job title did you analyze?

What methods did you use for analysis? (interviews, questionnaires, observation, etc.)

What sources did you use for analysis? (incumbents, supervisors, SMEs, O*NET, SHRM, BLS, etc.)

What challenges did you encounter during this process?

What would you do differently if you had more time to complete your analysis?

Also include a brief job description (expect to take about 1 page), to include:

Job title

Brief job summary

Job requirements (tasks and KSAOs)

Your work will be graded on content, clarity, creativity, correctness, and, above all, critical thinking per the HRA Written Assignment Rubric.

Submit your assignment to the Assignment box no later than Sunday 11:59 PM EST/EDT. (This Assignment box is linked to Turnitin.) [Note: if you collaborated on the assignment, only one author should submit, with the names of all team members on the report.]
