Rob's Top 5 Tips - Application Forms

Application forms are a necessary hurdle for many jobs. Here are some ways to tackle them:

  1. Do a rough draft first
    This way, you can check and correct mistakes before uploading/writing out in neat.
  2. Follow the instructions carefully
    This shows you’re paying attention to detail and helps the employer to assess you more easily.
  3. Keep it relevant
    Try to provide as much information on every aspect of the person specification as you can.
  4. Fill in all the boxes
    If a question doesn’t apply to you, write ‘N/A’ to show the reader you haven’t ignored the question.
  5. Keep a copy of your application
    You will need this when preparing for your interview.
