Here are a few tips and suggestions to get the most out of your online application:

  • Keep it simple – Your goal shouldn’t be to gather all of the applicants information, but just enough to know if this is someone that you want to bring in for an interview or not.
  • Reliable information – Just remember who is filling out the application and how reliable the information is.
  • Useful information – The more free text answers the applicant can fill out, the harder it will be to search on that information. Limit them to answer the questions how you want them to answer the questions by using drop downs or check boxes.
  • Time friendly – You need to be able to quickly enter the entire online application. If it takes longer than 15 minutes to fill out, you lost the battle and lost an applicant!
