Brian’s Answer

The responses received already have solid recommendations as to what type of content to include in your application.

An additional suggestion... before starting to fill out the application, you should research the company or organization. Learn about their mission & vision, the markets & customers they serve, their portfolio of products or services, etc. Also, as available, you may want to see how well-regarded they are as to product reviews & current/former-employee feedback. Even a high-level understanding of these various considerations will help you as you decide which job to pursue, as you complete the application &, hopefully, when you interview for the job.

I wish you all the best!

Hi Hailey,

Great Question, as Courtney stated, job applications are usually pretty simple. Just be sure to read the application before filling it out, take your time, answer completely and truthfully, include your resume, fill out job information chronologically, put in the extra effort and research your salary.

Courtney’s Answer


Job applications are usually pretty simple. They typically as for your name and address, employment history, and references. Some applications require a resume as well and others do not. Your resume will include your name and address, your educational history, employment history, any volunteer work you have done, and any certifications you may have.
