Using Job Applications

Applications are standardized forms that serve as a way to gather information about people that apply for jobs with your business. You can use an application as a substitute for accepting resumes, or in addition to resumes.

If you're hiring your first employee, you can either buy simple standardized applications at the office supply store, or ask for resumes.

If you decide you want to create a customized application for your business, you must first consider:

Business Tools

The Business Tools area includes a sample application form that you can use as a guide. You can customize this document to suit your needs by adding or subtracting parts of it, but be careful not to ask anything that does not relate to a business necessity.
