When a person is eager to get a job he is often to fill in a resume (USA) or a Curriculum vitae (UK) or a standard printed application form. The forms can be laid out in different ways but the information required will, in most cases, be the same.

The information given by the candidate in these papers will be helpful in assessing the candidate's suitability for the post.

From the candidate's point of view, this paper is the first impression the firm will obtain of him or her and therefore it is important that the candidate completes the paper clearly and carefully.

A curriculum vitae should usually contain the following information:

Name E-mail Marital status Languages
Address Date of birth Objective Hobby
Telephone Place of birth Work experience References
Fax Nationality Education  

CV's or resumes as well as application forms will require the name and address of at least two individuals who can act as referees, which means those who can provide references. The referees may be contacted and asked whether or not they consider the applicant to be suitable for the post. The candidate may name a vicar, a doctor, or an old family Mend as one of referees.

Normally, the firm will ask for the names of present or former employees or supervisors for whom the candidate has worked.

Once the company has obtained the resumes and completed form of the candidates, the next step is to compare them. This can be a lengthy process, trying to match the attributes of the applicants to the post. Some CVs and forms will be discounted straight away because, for example:

they are badly written, perhaps they have poor spelling and are untidy

the applicant's qualifications may be inadequate for the post

the applicant may be too old or too young.

These applicants will be sent letters informing them that they were unsuccessful in their application. Of the CVs and application forms remaining, a "short" list will be drawn up. This is a list of the applicants seen as best suited for the post. Letters will be sent to those listed, inviting them for interview on a certain date. At the same date the company will usually send for references.

The interview is the major way the companies assess whether a candidate is suitable for a particular post. It allows the company to make a judgement on:

the candidate's personality (will he fit into the company and be able to mix with
the other staff?)


the ability of the candidate to communicate

whether the information on the CV or application form is correct.

It also gives the candidate the chance to find out more about the company, such the working condition, hours of work, pay and training.
