Application For Employment - Application Sections

Application Sections

Applications usually ask the applicant at the minimum for your name, phone number, and address. In addition to this applications also ask for previous employment information, educational background, emergency contacts, references, as well as any special skills the applicant might have.

The three categories application fields are very useful for discovering are; physical characteristics, experience, and socio-environmental factors.

Physical Characteristics

If the company has a bona fide occupational qualification (BFOQ) to ask regarding a physical condition, they may ask questions about it. Such as: The job requires a lot of physical labor. Do you have any physical problems that may interfere with this job?


Experience requirements can be separated into two groups on an application, work experience and educational background. Educational background is important to companies because by evaluating applicants’ performance in school tells them what their personality is like as well as their intelligence. Work experience is important to companies because it will inform the company if the applicant meets their requirements. Companies are usually interested when applicants were unemployed and when/why the applicant left their previous job.

Socio-environmental qualifications

Companies are interested in the applicant’s socio-environment because it can inform them of their personality, interest, and qualities. If they are extremely active within an organization, that may demonstrate their ability to communicate well with others. Being in management may demonstrate their leadership ability as well as their determination and so on.

Famous quotes containing the words sections and/or application:

    I have a new method of poetry. All you got to do is look over your notebooks ... or lay down on a couch, and think of anything that comes into your head, especially the miseries.... Then arrange in lines of two, three or four words each, don’t bother about sentences, in sections of two, three or four lines each.
    Allen Ginsberg (b. 1926)

    Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear—not absence of fear. Except a creature be part coward it is not a compliment to say it is brave; it is merely a loose application of the word. Consider the flea!—incomparably the bravest of all the creatures of God, if ignorance of fear were courage.
    Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910)
