In this new technology age, almost everything is done online including completion of applications for work and submitting your resume.
Sometimes this can be overwhelming and people tend to over think their applications. Here are some tips on completing your application and submitting your resume online successfully.
- Be sure your resume is up to date and ready to go. Save it as a PDF so it can be easily read no matter what type of computer is opening it.
- Don’t over think the application and don’t second guess yourself. Sometimes it feels like you are answering the same question over and over but just answer as it comes to you.
- If there is a place to add in a personal note be sure to do so. This is a good way to get your resume read and a response sent to you.
- Follow up. Sometimes people are busy so always follow up to be sure your application and resume was received and to find out the status. That way you can plan for an interview or move on to the next opportunity if this one is already filled.
I hope this helps you with navigating the online application process so you can jump on any opportunities that feel like they could be a good fit for you!
