Completing a Job Application:

Do you struggle with remembering dates, addresses, skills, supervisor's names and phone numbers? Have a master job application that you can refer to when filling out those long applications. By having a master application already completed, you will have all the information you need to fill out any job application.

Filling out a job application completely takes time and effort on your part. Reduce this added stress by completing a master job application that you can take with you when applying for jobs. With all the information at your fingertips, you are able to fill out the application right there and then.

Here are some tips on filling out an application:

  1. Print clearly with a blue or black pen.
  2. Do not leave any blank spaces. Write Not Applicable or N/A when a question does not apply to you.
  3. Check for spelling and grammatical errors. Suggested responses for reasons for leaving (be prepared to explain if asked in an interview)
  •   Better growth opportunity
  •   Career change
  •   Raise family
  •   Reduction of workforce
  •   Seasonal work
  •   Temporary work
  •   Further education
