published 12/03/2001

Can help you gain employment if done well.

Take a long time to do. Each application form can ...

Application forms can be far worse than covering letters and CV’s, and can take a lot longer. However I am going to give you some tips from my extensive experience in filling them out on how to speed up the filling in process, as well as how tell employers the information about you they...

“Painful but necessary”

published 08/05/2001

Can be very helpful in getting a job

A real hassle to complete

Job hunting can be a pain at the best of times. Even when you've only got to write a simple covering letter and put it with your CV, it's bad enough, but there is a worse experience – the dreaded application form. Many job applications, particularly within the public sector, will demand that you...

“Think before you apply.”

published 06/06/2001

Can get you a job.

Takes time and effort.

With a large number of the on-line recruitment web sites it is usually very easy to click on a link to apply for a job. Because this can be so easy it appears that a large number of applicants do not make a lot of effort when applying for on-line jobs. The art of writing a covering letter seems...

I'm writing this op from the perspective of at times having been both a prospective employee and as someone taking part in recruitment. How you complete your application form is an essential element of applying for a job. No matter how brilliant or capable you are, you will never be given your...

Very tedious and lengthy to complete sometimes!

This is a basic guide to completing job applications. First and foremost, don’t waste your time and a potential employer’s time by applying for a job that you are not suitable for, e.g. you don’t have the minimum qualifications and/or experience required. It is not good for your morale if you...

I never ever stop reading unless forced which is why a few months ago at work, with all the gift wraps finished, the customers served, the coffee machine stocked and the administration completed, I declined my colleagues' offer to sit in the office and chat about gorgeous Claire on Home and...

you have much more scope to impress than with a CV

takes more time and effot

Application forms are often used in appointments to public and voluntary sector positions, the idea being that it levels the playing field and creates more equal opportunities, than scrutinising CVs which could have been written by an agency or adviser. However, you can be ‘more equal than...

Your first chance to sell yourself.

Your first chance to make a prat of yourself.

It seems that all the topics in this category are geared towards Higher Education/ Graduate/ Post Graduate employment. Given which, this is probably not going to be helpful. In fact, it’s probably not going to be helpful anyway, since the opinion which follows my customary prologue is but a...

If your application form is filled in well, that job can be yours. But you have to make sure you follow some simple points. 1 Read the questions carefully and use the right colour ink. Many forms will say use Block Capitals and Black ink. If you can't even follow simple written instructions like...

“The art of creativity”

published 24/02/2003

Something I got sent by email

Slightly off topic perhaps? Maybe not.

I wish I had wrote this application, it is so out there! What follows is a real, honest-to-god application form a potential student handed into Southampton Uni. The really cool thing is that they gave him a place on the course. I love creative thought and surreality so this blew me away...enjoy:...
