Application Form

What is Application Form ?

  
An ‘Application Form’ is a data entry form that you fill in, in order to provide your details to the concerned authorities. In the case of HR, application forms are used to get relevant details from the candidates applying for a position.
 
With the advent of technology, pen and paper forms have been replaced with digital forms which can even be filled online.
 
HRs benefit from an application form as it standardizes the information received from each candidate and this helps in evaluating them objectively.
 
A disadvantage of the application form is that it does not allow the candidate to express himself or herself freely. Also, if the application forms are lengthy, it discourages candidates from filling out the same since they would have already invested a lot of time in perfecting their resume.
