By Jenna Litchfield
Sometimes when you apply for a job, you will be asked to fill out a general employment application form, this is basically in case you do not have a resume, and so the employer can find out the specific information they need about you before an interview.
Some of the things they could ask you in a general employment application are basically a whole lot personal information from your contact details, previous education, brief history of you employment past, and also whether you have a drivers license and or a criminal history as we have listed in the template below.
All this information is necessary for the employer, to determine whether you are a successful candidate for the job, also you can find out information from the applicant that they might not include in their Curriculum Vitae.

As you can see in the free general employment application template below is that we have included all personal information including date of birth and type of sex, home numbers and social security numbers.
To list these as in the free general employment application template is a good way for the employers to do background checks on applicants, to search for criminal records etc.

Also they might ask you your available start day, here it is best to say as soon as possible as employers like to see that you are keen to work straight away, if you put desired date in the space, be prepared to explain your reasons why.

Also as in the free general employment application template they can ask if you want full time employment or part time employment, this is handy for roles that require shift work, they also ask the minimum amount of hours each week that you want to work and the maximum, this ensures that you are getting the right amount of work that you want each week.

Like the free general employment application template, they will ask if you have a drivers license and a means of transportation, this is so they can guarantee that you will be able to get to work each day, also to have a license may be useful if you have to use company cars to run errands etc.

The biggest thing in the free general employment application template is the question HAVE YOU EVERY BEEN CONVICTED OF A CRIME this is vital to employment, do not lie in this section AT ALL, either way they will find out if you do have a criminal record, if you do at least be honest about it, because it could just be speeding tickets, but that could be vital to a driving role so please be honest.

Next when writing a general employment application form, they will ask you about your work history and education, this is fairly simply as you can just enter the information into the relative spaces, but be sure to remember dates, names of companies, colleges etc, positions, qualifications, locations and contact details, as we have listed in the template below.
So of course if you are going to fill out a general employment application form, bring along a copy of CV for reference on the details.
