Submitting Online Job Applications
Job applications are very important when you are looking for jobs, even part-time jobs. There are numerous pieces of advice I can give on how to apply for part-time jobs. One of the most important things you should do is know when you are free to work. Most people looking for hourly jobs are either working moms or working students.
Companies know this, so you better have an answer ready when they ask you this question during your interview. You should also do proper research on the company and the position you want to work in because some companies may interview you the moment you submit your job application, especially if you submit it in-person.
There are basically two ways by which you can submit your job applications, either online or offline. Online submissions are usually made directly to the company’s official website or through a job search listing. Companies will usually post on their sites when they have openings for part-time positions.
Likewise, there are on-line job search listings that are catered specifically for part-time jobs or on-the-job training programs. It’s all a matter of doing the proper research.
Submitting Offline Job Applications
On the other hand, submitting offline entails that you either snail mail your resume to the company you want to work for, personally give your resume to the company, or apply to the company during a job fair. The third process is the easiest since you are sure that a company is looking for employees when it joins a job fair.
If you’re mailing a resume or sending it in-person, you should check to make sure that the company or the store of the company you want to work for is looking for employees for the job you are applying for, or else they may just discard your resume. The advantage of sending your job application online is that they will keep it in their company database, in case a position suddenly becomes available.
Remember that some companies may accept one form of job application submission, but not another. You should make an effort to find out the best way you can get your job applications to the company you want to apply for.
