Job application

Wikis > Job application

A job application is an official online or hard copy information form a potential employer asks a potential jobseeker to fill out. This can happen before a first interview, after an offer is made, or at any time during the process. The job application provides a consistent format with the same questions that must be answered by each person who applies for an open position. The job application is a legally defensible listing of a job applicant’s employment history, educational background, degrees, qualifications, references, and more.
