Employment documents Presentation Transcript

  • 1. Employment Documents Module 5 Lesson 5
  • 2. Employment documents?
    • Job Application — An employment form used by employers to document information pertaining to job applicants.
    • Resume — Usually a one-page document, a resume is a summative document describing an applicant.
  • 3. Job Applications
  • 4. Job Applications
    • View the sample applications below
    • Sample Application
    • NC State Employees Application
    • Sample Online Application
  • 5. Job Application Tips
    • Take a copy of your resume with you when applying in person and use the resume to help in completing the job application form.
    • Obtain an application in advance if possible. Make a copy and use this as a rough draft to eliminate making errors on the final copy.
    • Use only blue or black ink when completing a hand-written job application.
    • Check to see if the application form is available on-line. This makes for a neater copy, if available.
  • 6. Job Application Tips
    • Always answer all items correctly and honestly. Employers can and do verify information. False information on any application documents is regarded to be sufficient justification to not hire an individual. In addition, if false information is discovered after employment, it can be considered a valid condition for termination. Most employment applications ask you to sign your name at the bottom of the document. In many cases there is a statement immediately above your signature stating that you are verifying the information given by you to be accurate and truthful.
  • 7. Information that you will typically be expected to supply is:
    • Name, address and telephone number(s) where you can be reached.
    • Social Security number
    • Age if under 18 since you will require special permits to work
  • 8. Information that you will typically be expected to supply is:
    • The job opening for which you are applying.
    • Be as open and as flexible as possible, but accurate.
  • 9. Information that you will typically be expected to supply is:
    • School attended (to include dates of attendance, diploma, degrees or certification achieved, and contact information).
  • 10. Information that you will typically be expected to supply is:
    • Criminal history, again, be honest
  • 11. Information that you will typically be expected to supply is:
    • Transportation—do you have reliable transportation to work. Even if the job doesn’t involve driving, it is important that an employer know you will be able to get to work.
  • 12. Information that you will typically be expected to supply is:
    • You may also be asked to give references. These are individuals who can attest to your abilities and/or character. Typically, you should not use relatives or spouses as references. Additionally, make sure you contact any potential references, obtain their approval to be used as a reference, and know what type of information they will give about you. You want no surprises if you make it this far in the interview, and a poor reference could ruin your chances for employment.
  • 13. Information that you will typically be expected to supply is:
    • Share your skills, accomplishments and abilities. Be honest, but don’t be shy. What awards have you won? What classes have you taken to help prepare you for this job? Use this opportunity to really make yourself shine. Good spelling and grammar is critical.

  • 28. What to include?
    • The references may be keyed at the bottom of the resume if space permits, or if listed on a separate page, key a statement similar to the following under the “References” section:
      • “ References will be provided upon request.”
  • 29. Templates
    • It may be easier to use a template for a resume rather than starting from scratch.
    • A template is a predesigned form that already has the necessary elements in place and good use of text enhancements
