Welcome to the Job Application Guide
For anybody, navigating a career search, or even filling out an online job application form, can be a new and daunting task. With competition for job applications increasing and job search resources becoming more and more sophisticated, it can seem like finding any job, not your ideal job, becomes the goal. JobApplicationGuide.com was created to help you solve this dilemma.
We have brought together a team with over 35 years of experience helping students find the jobs and careers they really want. Our motto is simple: organization, information and preparation. We want to give you the fastest, most direct, and sensible ways to find the job you want. Without you having to “settle” for a job that just “pays the bills.”
At JobApplicationGuide.com we have compiled a list of job applications and online job application procedures for most every major employer in the U.S. Our team has already done 95% of the work for you, and its all right at the tips of your fingers on this site. This site walks you completely through the job application form process. Where applicable, you can download printable applications from our site. Where there is not a printable application available to download, we’ll provide the link to the online application site where you can directly apply for the job you are looking for. And from A to Z we outline each step in the employment application process for you to follow.
Your Biggest Job Application Challenges
Most likely the biggest challenge for you finding the your ideal job is competition. For one, the job market is often sparse, with hundreds of thousands of graduates fighting over a few thousand of the best jobs. In addition, high general unemployment rates mean that even on traditional jobs site like CareerBuilder or Monster, for every job vacancy listed, there on average over 75 applicants. That means if you approach your job application search by doing what everyone else is doing, you’ve got to be the best of the best. The odds are definitely not in your favor.
To further complicate the online job application process, over 50% of current job vacancies are never posted by major employers. That’s right. By only using traditional online employment application websites, you will miss out on over half of current job vacancies available to you.
It is vital to understand that half of all job vacancies are filled by headhunters representing corporations and even more are filled by direct job applications already on file held by that company. This is extremely important to understand: by having your employment application submitted directly and on file with a company, you can take advantage of job vacancies being filled internally at those companies. This is exactly what we help you do.
By using our free resources at JobApplicationGuide.com, we provide you direct access to apply today for job vacancies that most people do not know about. We believe you should never underestimate the power of being proactive. Everyday we see examples of individuals applying to companies that have no current job listings, only to be invited in for an interview the same week. Or in some cases, invited in the exact same day!
On our site you will find hundreds of the U.S. leading employers. Below is a sample list of just some of the largest employers that we can help you apply directly to. Many of these companies have literally hundreds of unlisted job openings currently.
