Top tips for completing job application forms
Application forms are a necessary hurdle for many jobs. Here are some ways to tackle them:
- Do a rough draft first
This way, you can check and correct mistakes before uploading/writing out in neat.
- Follow the instructions carefully
This shows you’re paying attention to detail and helps the employer to assess you more easily.
- Keep it relevant
Try to provide as much information on every aspect of the person specification as you can.
- Fill in all the boxes
If a question doesn’t apply to you, write ‘N/A’ to show the reader you haven’t ignored the question.
- Keep a copy of your application
You will need this when preparing for your interview.
