Completing a Job Application

Since you never get a second chance to make a first impression, completing the job application accurately and completely requires the same attention and rigor as building your resume or preparing for an interview.

In this program you'll learn all about the job application, how it's formatted, how to complete one, and some tips to increase the chance that yours is reviewed by the hiring manager.

Before you start, here are a few things to know.


  • The content of this program is presented in a single topic.
  • Your progress is monitored. You must successfully complete the topic to complete the program.
  • There are some questions at the end of the topic so you can evaluate your learning and identify information you would like to review. Don't worry, it's not a test and it's not graded. We call it a, "Check on Learning."


  • The program should only take about 30 minutes to complete.
  • Because there are no student accounts or retention of personal information, there is no bookmarking features. Users must complete the program in one session to be able to print a completion certificate at the end of the program.
