What Is a Job Application Form?

A job application form is a document filled out by job seekers to apply for a position with a specific employer. The application typically asks for basic information about the candidate while also asking questions related to the applicant's interest in the position.

Job application forms may also ask a candidate to provide information on his work history as well as a list of references and contact details. The applicant signs the form at the bottom, indicating he has answered the questions honestly and provided accurate information. Applicants often include a resume and cover letter along with the application form.
