  • After gathering information, the job analyst uses the information to analyze the job.
    One of the broadest and best-researched instruments for analyzing jobs is the Position Analysis Questionnaire (PAQ).
    The person analyzing a job determines whether each item on the questionnaire applies to the job being analyzed, and then rates each item based on six scales.
    Using the PAQ provides an organization with information that helps in comparing jobs, even when they are dissimilar.
