An increasing number of organizations prefer that applicants use online applications for the vacancies. When applying for a position online, the applicant is required to fill in a resume application.
Just as in your normal resume, ensure that you are truthful in filling out the resume application. You should also try to use your strongest points. Below is an example of a resume application.
Address: Street Address:
Mobile Phone Number:
Highest Level of Education:
Position being applied for:
After some period: State period:
Title or Post held:
Hobbies and Interests:
Many employers are opting for the use of resume applications since they can limit the applicants’ responses to the areas that are of most interest to them.
Resume applications make it easier for employers to eliminate those applicants that are not qualified by scanning for key words.
Since the applicant’s responses are limited, it is important that they use their strongest points to get an edge over the competition. This is not the time to hold back.
Applicants should not look at the resume application as if it were a disadvantage to them. They should look at it as if it were to ease their application process.
You can be sure that your application will be considered when using this online tool as all applications are stored in the system.
Make sure that you make a copy of the resume application so that you know what you filled in in case you are called in for an interview.
