Fill Out Job Applications Online
Filling out job applications can be a frustrating process during a job interview. You are often asked to fill out much of the same information that's already on your resume. You are also frequently required to provide additional information like employment references and professional certifications. Oftentimes people don't have this information on hand when they go in to interview.
Why do we have to fill out job applications? The law requires it. A resume is not enough. A great number of companies have evolved and provide job candidates with the option of filling out job applications online. You can do this from the privacy of your own home where you should have all the necessary information on hand. It's more convenient for you and more convenient for the company.
Why Fill out Job Applications Online
Written applications typically go in a filing cabinet somewhere in the Human Resources Department. Most states require companies to keep these applications for at least six months before they can legally discard them. If you fill out a written application, go through the interviewing process and don't get the job, the chances of you getting a second chance with that company are razor thin.
Online job applications, however, are easy to store in company databases. Corporate recruiters have a much easier time accessing online applications than written ones. In fact, many recruiters run a search of past candidates who have previously applied with their company before they try different routes. Online applications don't end up in some dusty file cabinet only to be shredded at a later date.

Job Hunting Sites
Job hunting sites have revolutionized the hiring and job search process. The Internet is teeming with hundreds of different job hunting websites for prospective candidates to post their resumes and examine available jobs. These sites also allow recruiters in subscribing companies to search for candidates in their resume databases. Both employees and employers have reaped the benefits of this phenomenon.
A few years ago there were only a few recommended job hunting web sites for both employees and recruiters. As the years go by, however, more and more job hunting sites are popping up, many of which offer broader coverage and more specialized services. Job seekers are inundated with recommendations and recruiters have too many places to look. Is it possible that this surge in career search sites has actually created a problem of abundance?
Too Many Job Hunting Sites?
Fear not my friends, because there are not too many job hunting web sites on the Internet. In fact, it probably won't hurt if a few more enter the market. Having more sites encourages more competition. The job boards are getting better and better every day, offering newer and better services to both companies and job seekers.
The only foreseeable problem is knowing which sites are worth using. Frankly, there are over 50 reputable job boards on the Internet and it would take you a millennium to examine all of them. For that reason I would put your faith in a resume posting service that targets the top job hunting web sites. This will save you a ton of time and frustration.
