Some employers consider application forms as first indirect test of the candidate’s ability to follow instructions and communication skills.

It’s important that applicants take care of their grammatical or spelling errors in text fields. No fake data, or cheating in their resume. This is first stage of interview with the employer.

Having this form is a great add-on to HR’s flow, but having it on paper is against logic. Using online forms helps in searching entries, creating conditional rules like forwarding certain category of applicants directly to department head or HR personal.
