My Assessment:
Similarities between Two Job Descriptions:

Both of them include job title, company name, and location in general.
Both of them include general duties and responsibilities of the job.
They include specific skills, education, and experience required for the job.
They mentioned how to apply for the job.
They also talked about the working conditions and requirements of the
selected job.
6. Both jobs emphasize in management, organizational, analytical, and
computer skills.

Differences between Two Job Descriptions:

1. The first one didnt mention about the company profile, while the second
one did.
2. Second one indicated the date to start the work while the first one didnt
say anything about the start date.
3. The first one is more detailed describing the necessary skills,
qualifications, duties and responsibilities required for the job. The second one is
kind of short in that case.
4. First job demands for some specific degrees in related fields as well as
designations. Second job on the other hand are more flexible and doesnt ask for
that much in particular.
5. Second job requires providing background check. First job didnt ask for
anything about that.

From the comparison, I can say that there are some reasons behind these
differences between the two jobs. The first job is looking for employee for a full-time
position while the second job is looking for employee in contract based full-time position.


They also have different job requirements. The first job is more complex in nature than
the second job in terms of duties, responsibilities, qualifications, and skills. Also, the first
job description is made for a reason while the second one is a formal job description.
These are some reasons why these two jobs differ from each other.
