Tips For Completing A Job Application
Bring the necessary information or have it ready to input online. That includes your resume details, identification (including a valid passport or driver’s license), proof of citizenship, and contact information for previous employers.
Follow instructions precisely. Read and review the entire application form first before you fill it out, and then do so legibly. Consider your application as a reflection of your work ethic. Don't leave any questions blank (write "N/A" for answers that aren't applicable) and don't write "See resume" instead of answering a question. For online applications, check for typos before you submit them.
Shape your answers to fit the job. Avoid writing a laundry list of your education and experience. Instead, offer details about skills and accomplishments rather than a list of duties. To substantiate your experience, draw on your school work, extracurricular activities, and volunteer work if any. Try to craft an application that sets you apart and details why you're not only qualified but bring uniqueness to the role.
List references. Provide professional references, if you have them. If you don't have a long work history, include character references in addition to (or instead of) past employer references. If your work history is more robust, choose references who can attest to your skills and accomplishments relevant to the position.
Avoid being vague in salary requirements. Employers often use this question to screen applications, and you don't want to be ruled out before getting an interview. Be specific in what you seek as long as your experience and skill demand it and fall within the range we are offering. Above all, please indicate if your salary expectation is "Negotiable" for further consideration should your application be shortlisted by us.
