Many serious big companies nowadays are interested in hiring graduate students to raise required company personnel. They are interested to employ so to say “clean” youngsters to be able to produce out of them the kind of managers they need. These companies know that there can be not much that you are able to put on your resume yet and that is fine with them; instead what they are looking at is how intelligent, creative, proactive and loyal you can be. For this reason they created a multi-tier interview process that begins with filling out their online application form. That is something I would like to talk to you about here.
These online application forms are usually a well-structured, many sections and different requirements documents that can be found and downloaded from the company’s website. They can vary in the tasks’ scope, but all of them are aimed to see: number one – how well you can work with papers and documents; number two – how you can describe yourself, your goals and career perspectives; number three – what references you can provide; number four – how well you can solve problems (including math problems); number five – how you can present and/or “sell” yourself.
Before filling out any application form, make sure all the necessary data is at hand. Make sure you have collected references in advance, have a copy of your grades (if required), know all the details that needs to be reflected on an application.
Fill out data using the same format for text. If you make right data centering, make sure all the data is centered to the right. Double check the spelling and data correctness.
Pay special attention to writing essays. They will be studied carefully. Their aim is to see how well you can dwell on the subject, how you can search and operate facts and numbers, how you can prove and state your view point and how you can defend your believes. Make sure the sentences are extended, but not confusing. If you’re not sure of the grammar correctness, it’s better to divide the long sentences into the short ones about the rightness of which you are confident. At the same time try to make your text interested to read. Don’t place just dry facts with no personal opinion. Anyway, your opinion is all that really matters.
Try to study the company’s profile and think of how you personally could benefit to the company and from the company. Make the jury believe that you are exactly whom they are looking for – bright, intelligent, active, full of ideas, reliable, creative and worth the investments.
Hope this information helps you in succeeding. If you have any further questions on application forms, please submit them through the site and I will be glad to help you out.
