Do you need a job application upload form on your site? The WPForms job application form template allows applicants to quickly upload their resume and cover letter to express interest in a job opening.
In asking applicants to upload their files, you keep the form simple. Apart from basic contact information, they won’t need to fill out all of their personal details again on the form. They’ll already be in the cover letter and resume they upload. That streamlines the application process considerably for you and the applicant.
With our job application upload form template, you get the following fields:
- Full name
- Email (single line of text field)
- Phone number
- How did you find out about this position? (Radio buttons; “Other” will display a new single line of text field using conditional logic)
- Resume upload (file upload field)
- Cover letter upload (file upload field)
- Additional information (paragraph text field)
If you find that you need or want to customize the form further, all of our form templates are 100% customizable.
How Do I Make a Job Application Form?
The easiest way to create an online job application form is with WPForms. With our easy-to-use form builder, you can drag and drop whichever elements you need to create any kind of form you want.
Although you can start from scratch and build your employment application form up from scratch, our template library includes hundreds of templates you can use. If you start with one of our job application form templates, you can add, edit, or delete form fields in a matter of seconds. This streamlines the process considerably.
Once your form fields are in place, you’re ready to start collecting responses. Embed the form on your website or wherever you want it to appear, and you’re good to go.
Customizing Your Job Application Form
This job application template is designed to be simplistic. You can collect a lot of applicant information on the resume and cover letter through the file uploads, removing the need for a lot of additional feeds. You might want candidates to submit additional information, though, just to be sure it’s included.
The template already includes name and contact information. This form is intended to be embedded directly on a specific job posting page, but if you wanted to make it more versatile, you could add a field to select the job opening for which they’re applying. This can be done using dropdowns, checkboxes, or radio buttons.
You could also add fields for single lines of text so applicants can include links to social media such as their LinkedIn profiles for easy review.
Other customization options might include work experience or employment history, certifications and skills, current employment status, and preferred start date.
Receiving Application Notifications
Now that you’ve created and embedded your form, you don’t want to miss the submissions. In WPForms, you can enable submission confirmations and email notifications for your forms. This way, any time someone submits the job application form, they’ll immediately get a confirmation message.
Applicants will know that their application has been received, as well as any next steps in the hiring process. You’ll get a notification that someone submitted an application, helping you to review them in a timely fashion.
