What is a Job Application?

Many employers will consider your resume and cover letter to be the job application. However, some businesses
have a standard job application form that they want completed by everyone applying for work.
 
Job Application Tips:
  • Read the entire application first and follow directions carefully.
  • Ask for two copies. You can fill one out in pencil first before doing a final copy in pen.  Your first copy can then be kept as a record.
  • If possible, take the application home to complete. That way you can take your time and ensure accuracy.
  • Use your resume for reference.
  • Answer every question. If a question does not apply to you, put N/A in the space.N/A means “not applicable”.
  • Be honest.
  • Sign and date the application.
  • Attach a copy of your resume and cover letter.
