Customize your form design to match your brand

Your job application form can and should be a representation of your unique employer brand. Customize the layout of your form in your company settings.

Adjust the form any way you like and make changes even after it’s been published.

Why use an online job application form versus a PDF or email?

A flexible online application form helps you organize and make sense of all the applicants' information, making it easier for you to screen and evaluate candidates.

When your application form is the same across the board, you can more objectively compare candidates' skills and experience (a win for your DE&I hiring efforts)! And when you provide an easy-to-fill-in online form that highlights your employer brand, it creates a strong first impression and a seamless hiring experience that'll motivate them to want to be a part of your team.

What information should I include on my job application form?

You can include as much or as little information on your job application form as you like. But to keep it simple and easy for applicants to fill in, you can add these basic question fields to your employment application form:
- Full name
- Work experience and previous employment
- Location

Once you've got the basic info, you can always spice up your job application form with additional fields. You can ask for their preferred start date, educational background or even a link to their social media profile—it's all up to you. If you want to collect CVs or have applicants upload an introduction video rather than a typed-out response, you can include a question with fields for file uploads.

Can I easily edit and customize this job application form?

Absolutely. You have complete control over the job application form. Customize it to match your brand's colors and add an engaging wallpaper or background to make it visually appealing. You're the boss of the content, too. You get to choose the application questions candidates need to answer, whether it's multiple choice, yes or no, file upload or just plain text. And if you want to dig deeper into applicants' abilities, go ahead and throw in an assignment to the form. It's all up to you!

How can I optimize my job application form? 

Here are our five top tips for optimizing your employment form to improve your job application process and get the most important information from your applicants:

  • Keep it short and sweet: Applications that are too long and with too many steps are a big pain for job seekers. It doesn't make sense to make candidates invest a ton of time this early in the hiring process.
  • Make it as easy as possible to fill in the application form: Automate the application process where possible. For example, allow candidates to pre-fill an application form with basic information from their LinkedIn profile rather than uploading a CV.
  • Ask questions that candidates want to fill in: Ask interesting, open-ended job application questions that get your candidates to show you who they are and if they’re a value-fit for your company.
  • Throw in something light: You need to be able to hold your candidate's attention and motivate them to finish the application. Throw in a light, fun question that will put a smile on their face.
  • Test the application form process for yourself: Before you publish and share your form, take it for a test drive. Ask yourself if the process is smooth and clear based on how long it’ll take applicants to complete.
