Application forms

It is more than likely that after graduation you will need to send out several applications to employers. If you want employers to notice your application among the hundreds they receive – whether you have sent a CV and covering letter, or an application form - you will need to invest a considerable amount of time to get things right.

Many employers prefer candidates to fill out an application form, instead of sending a CV. Like your CV, you need to ensure you market yourself effectively but work to a set template.
