One important thing to remember as you define job qualifications is that certain federal laws (that apply to businesses with 15 or more employees) and state laws (that may apply to businesses with only one employee) have antidiscrimination laws that place certain restrictions on defining and using job qualifications.

Once you have a handle on what you want in the way of qualifications, you can use the results to create a job description.
