    Job overview = general information, including the tasks other employees may be asked to do (sweep the floor, disinfect the telephones, keep the bulletin boards current, plunge a stopped-up toilet, etc.)

    Job description = specific tasks of a particular job

    And it also can make a difference depending on the company you work for. Different companies will use various terminology incorrectly at times.
