As job application processes are increasingly shifting online, there is a much greater need for job application forms to be customised to fit the requirements of the employer as well as be accessible for applicants. Through Wispform, anyone can create the job application form that best suits their job.
This tutorial will go over how to create a job application form in six minutes using the features available with the free version of Wispform. We will show both a video tutorial or go through each step below. More advanced features for a more customisable job application form are available with a purchase of Wispform Pro.
Please first go and register a free Wispform account on our registration page to start creating your job application form.
Go to the dashboard, then select New Form and then select Create From Scratch. There is also a job application form sample available as a template. You can then enter the form name to enter the form builder.
In the form builder, first set up your Welcome Page, which you can find at the bottom of the list of questions on the left of the form builder. You could provide some primary information about what the applicant can expect while filling out the job application form.
You then can enter your greeting message and any further details or pictures through the buttons on the right hand side if necessary. Additionally, the theme button at the top can be used to change the background and font colours following the style of job application form you are seeking.
You can also find the option to create a statement on your job application form. In this sample, we use it to write the job requirements for the applicant to read before they start answering the necessary questions. We enter the job requirements in the Description box
The opinion scale question can be useful when there is a question on your job application form that needs to be answered using a scale of 1-10. The steps on the scale can be changed, along with the value of the left and right labels.
The short and long answer questions are for standard written answers that will usually be the most frequent for a job application form
Since every job application form will require a CV, we can use a file question for applicants to submit their CV. In the tutorial, we use the description box to notify applicants when they can expect a response once the job application form is submitted.
After checking that the job application form has everything needed, use the Share tab at the top. You can then embed the job application form on your website or share the URL where applicants may find it.
Congratulations! You've now completed your own job application form and can personalise it any way you want.
