Ensure You Have Provided All Required Information And Documents

When you apply for a job, you want to ensure that you provide everything the employers have asked for. I know this sounds straightforward, but it is simple to forget and not send something important.

As a standard rule, an application package will contain

  • The Application – Make sure it is completely filled out and legible.
  • A letter of introduction,
  • Your resume for that company
  • If requested, a list of 3-5 people they can contact for information on you.
  • Any other items they may have asked for.

Make sure you list everything you send so you do not accidentally forget something.

Getting everything to the employer on time and not missing the deadlines is vital to getting the job. Employers do not like to give extensions to job applicants, and most will not.

A retired Air Force Master Sergeant, Mike used to lay in bed at night and worry about what would happen if his plant closed or found himself without a job. One day his plant closed. Rather than panic and hysteria (OK, maybe a little) Mike found himself carried away on the adventure of his life. Mike started with the best job he ever had working at Home Depot. He spent 8 years working with job seekers at a local workforce center, helping them to find employment. He then started his own company developing courses, writing books and urging others to follow their own paths into the future. Mike holds a Master of Arts in Adult Education and Training and a Bachelor of Business Management, earned through the University of Phoenix and an AAS degree in Electronics Systems Technology from the Community College of the Air Force. Mike is a member of the Delta Mu Delta Business Honor Society.
