Complicated Application Form Processes

Posted By: Thomas Shaw, 2:10pm Tuesday 01 September 2009    Print Article

I am not a fan of long and complicated job application forms. Do you really need a candidate to register for an account before they can apply for a job? No. Registration details can be automatically generated after a form is submitted by using the candidates email address (as the primary id) and a randomly generated password.

Compare your registration/application form page views against the number of applications. How high is your churn rate?

Below is an example of a application process presented to a candidate when they apply to a particular recruitment agency. Keep it simple, cut down the steps in the process. Remember after 2 or 3 clicks people loose interest.

How many candidates are you loosing because of your application form?
