Fol­low the di­rec­tions

The Fresno Bee (Sunday) - - Job Market -

You could be elim­i­nated at the pre­lim­i­nary screen­ing phase sim­ply by not fol­low­ing for­mat­ting re­quire­ments or sign­ing an on­line ap­pli­ca­tion if it re­quires a sig­na­ture. Re-read your ap­pli­ca­tion for spelling, punc­tu­a­tion or gram­mar mis­takes. Reading it out loud is also help­ful, as the ear can of­ten make the best ed­i­tor. And sub­sti­tute your re­sume for the re­quested job ap­pli­ca­tion form. Yes, ap­pli­ca­tions can be time­con­sum­ing and te­dious to fill out. That’s be­cause they gen­er­ally ask for in­for­ma­tion not found on re­sumes — de­tailed in­for­ma­tion spe­cific to the po­si­tion and com­pany you’re ap­ply­ing to.
