This paper includes two major parts. The first part is introduction of Office of International Services and Program (OISP). The second part is job description analysis.

In the first part, I introduce the purpose of the OISP, the importance of OISP to KSU, the principle functions of OISP. These contexts indicate the OISP’s specific services for the campus communities and external organizations. I also talk about the structure and personnel of OISP in this part. Explain the responsibilities of each position. I knew the stockholders, and the leadership style of OISP. Additional, I analyzed the prospect of OISP based on their current situation and our internship experience.

For the second part, I talk about the job description analysis about the OISP. I read some books and documents, and then analyzed the definition and importance of job description for the human resource management. Based on human resource theories, I designed the job description questionnaire and the procedure for this job. There are four steps in the procedure of job description, job analysis phase, information collection, job guideline phase and application phase. I explicate the whole procedure and hope the job description can benefit the management of OISP.
