The employment application is a screening device for the employer. It:

1. Tells about who you are, what you have done and learned.

2. Tells how careful and neat your work will be, whether you will follow instructions and whether you can read and write.

3. Gives the employer clues about possible risks in hiring you.

4. May reveal trouble spots in your background, like getting fired or having a criminal conviction.

5. Is often the first thing about you that the employer sees. If it makes you look good, the employer will want to see you in person.

6. May open up jobs in the future for you, even if you're not hired immediately.

When you leave, only your application is left. How it looks represents you!
