Job Applications In Person

Applying for a job in person is a little different than applying for employment online. It's not as complicated, but you will need to be prepared to apply and interview on the spot.

If you are applying for a position at a large company, call first to see if there are openings or visit the customer service center or human resources office and ask if you can complete an application for employment. At a smaller employer, ask for the manager.

You may be asked to fill out an application at a hiring kiosk. In this case, you will use a computer or a free-standing kiosk to apply.

Also be prepared to complete a paper job application. So, bring the information you'll need to fill out an application with you.

What You Need to Complete a Job Application

  • Full contact information including your address, zip code and a phone number where you can be reached
  • Educational information including dates of graduation
  • Names and addresses of previous employers
  • Dates of employment
  • References
  • Resume (if you have one)
