What is a Job Application?

A job application is a form that every applicant completes to tell a potential employer about your background and skills. When filling out a job application, you should come prepared with the names, address and phone number for previous jobs, as well as the manager and how long you worked their. You may also have to answer some short questions about why you want the job you are applying for. A job application may take the place of a resume in some positions.
