Job application form FAQs:

1. Is this employment application form GDPR compliant?

Yes, totally. We understand that when you’re collecting personal details on an employemnt application that's not printable—you need to be sure it’s safe. Want to know more about our Privacy Policy? You can read more about it here, we even put it into plain English for you for transparency.

2. How can I format this employment application form?

You’re free to tweak fonts and colors of the template to match your brand. Make the job application experience interactive by adding videos, images, and GIFs. Write up friendly copy to make your candidates feel at ease. You can even embed your employment application form into your website, so your candidates can easily find it. If you’re looking to understand more about your new employees you could create a feedback survey using our intuitive survey maker.

3. What needs to be on a job application form?

You can be as minimal or extravagant with your job application form as you like. Of course, for a simple employment application form, you’ll need to add the basic fields:

  • Full name

  • Current job title

  • Work experience and previous employment

  • Street address

  • An overview of the job description

But after that, it’s up to you what applicant information you ask for—start date, high school subjects, any other jobs they've applied for—you decide. Use our File Upload question to collect CVs or for applicants to upload an introduction video, or stay old school and let applicants do the typing. You can even add a legal question to get permission for a background check (this can be done with a social security number too).

4. How can I optimize my job application form?

Of course, you want to get as many quality candidates you can. It makes your job easier—and it's better for Human Resources. Here are our five top tips for optimizing your employment form:

  1. Keep it short—you don't want people to drop off half way through, or fall asleep. This employment application template is the perfect length.

  2. Put yourself in the shoes of your applicant—does the application form flow well? Or does it feel clunky?

  3. Give people the option to link their LinkedIn profile instead of just their CV.

  4. Ask more original questions like, "What's your favorite way to keep up to date with SEO?"

  5. Guide people through this application for employment—let them know how much longer they have. Tell them when they have a couple more questions to go.

5. Is the File upload question type free?

No, it's on all our paid plans. If you want to use this handy feature and get files straight through your forms, you'll need to upgrade your account. You can of course sign up for free using this template and give it a spin before you decide.
