Why Online Employment Applications Should Suffice or Supersede Manual Applications
It is redundant and a waste of time and resources for employment applicants to complete manual employment applications once they’ve completed online applications for the same position(s). Completion of supplemental information is acceptable, of course, though, ideally, all information that would be solicited from an employment prospect would be remittable online. Employers may even opt for employees to electronically sign their employment applications and other relevant documents, or to print and disburse electronically completed applications and other documents to applicants for review and manual signatures during interviews or follow-up sessions. Technology enables facilitation of employment application processes and alleviation of bureaucracies synonymous with it. All employers should come on board.
