Employment Application Form

One of the main reasons for using an application form during the recruitment process is because there is no standard format for resumes. Using an application form will give you the standard information you need from each applicant.

It can also be used as a basic literacy test. We’ve seen some weird and wonderful spelling and grammar over the years, and using an application form cancels the option of a spell check for the applicant.

Ensuring the information you are being given is true and correct is even more important than the information itself. Once signed and dated the application form becomes a legal document which gives you the legal right to conduct credit and reference checks.

It is used immediately prior to the first interview, then compared with the applicants resume to ensure that both sets of information match.
