What Your Online Job Application Process Says About Your Company

Posted by JeffW

This post is by Jeff Waldman, founder of Stratify, a social HR solutions company, and SocialHRCamp, an experiential learning HR unconference that has run events in Canada, the United States, Singapore and Philippines.

You are looking for work and have come across one of those typical text-heavy and somewhat boring job postings. You dust off the cover letter and resume in preparation to take the plunge. You make the changes to your resume to better reflect where you are today in your career, and to maximize your relevancy to the vacancy in which you’re applying to.

You go online and venture to the career site. You find the position that you want to apply for and click the apply button. You are prompted to register with their database—you go back to your email and eagerly await the registration acceptance email. Ding ding, it arrives.

You then copy and paste your cover letter and resume into text boxes, which you then have to re-format so the words aren't scrambled. You are then prompted to respond to specific screening questions, provide a short essay on why you would like to apply, and answer a plethora of employment eligibility questions. Finally, you’re finished. You hit the apply button. Phew!
