Tools & Resources

PushButtonPD™ Tool

The PushButtonPD™ Tool can save you time and make your job easier. It helps you develop position descriptions for your cybersecurity positions, which then serve as the foundation for how to advertise your job and evaluate applicants for job openings.

  • The PushButtonPD™ Tool is linked to cybersecurity job information contained in the NICE Workforce Framework. This no-cost Tool, along with the Office of Personnel Management classification guidance, helps you capture in a Position Description (PD) the essence of a position’s cybersecurity duties; tasks; knowledge, skills, and abilities (KSAs); key factors; and other job-related requirements. You do this by selecting the applicable duties, KSAs, etc., from menus in the Tool. The PD you develop from the Tool can then be used to create cybersecurity job announcements with clear technical job requirements, and tailored applicant assessments to evaluate candidate qualifications for cybersecurity job functions.
