About Us

Our team has over thirty-five years of experience in the career and job search field.   Our staff is steadily growing to accommodate the expanding user base of our site.

Though www.jobapplicationguide.com was originally a general career reference site, a decision was made in late 2013 to make www.jobapplicationguide.com a site that would educate and offer career search advice specifically for students of all ages.

With a growing number of graduates annually, and a declining number of published job openings, our goal was to close the gap between supply and demand, both helping students find the best possible job to start their career while helping employers realized the benefit of investing in the best and brightest in our education systems.

Since the decision to cater specifically to students, the response has been overwhelmingly positive. It is our goal to continue to innovate our website and material to be useful as possible.
