·       The specific requirements, qualifications, and duties of the position.  All employees shall be given a copy of their job description upon reporting to duty.
 
·       Any anticipated changes in structure or function which may have a direct bearing on the position to be filled.  The applicant should be made to understand that reassignment is possible.
