Employment Applications

It always amazes me when people come to me looking for a job and hand me their application. Let me back up, a so called application. People need to be aware that an application is a window into their employment history, educational history and job qualifications.

Out of all the applications that I receive on a daily basis 99.8% of them are filled out incorrectly. Meaning that they are not completely filled out:

• Missing employment dates
• Missing employers’ information
• Missing job duties
• No contact phone numbers
• Application is not legible

These are the most common missing information on applications. So if you are looking for a job and are filling out your application, make sure it is filled out completely. If something does not apply to your situation please put N/A (Not Applicable), this shows that you pay attention to details. If you can’t completely fill out an application take it home with you and get someone to help you fill it out. You only get one chance to make a good first impression. Make the best first impression you can possibly make, it could be the difference between an employer even looking at your application.
