Embracing Digital Job Applications in the 21st Century

Spread the love

Welcome to the 21st Century! I am constantly amazed that even with all the technological advances in the past few decades, as a society, we are still holding on to our paper processes. Just think about how much paper flows through your life daily: mortgage applications, employee performance reviews, job applications, notes, books, recipes, bills, mail, faxes, handouts, newsletters, newspapers and much more! Isn’t it about time we cut down on the clutter and go digital? Consider embracing digital job applications as the first step.

Many of the above examples have digital alternatives, but we need to make an effort to switch over. For example, the job application process has historically been a paper-intensive process. Usually, a company will print out hundreds of copies of their paper application to throw away a lot of blank applications when the application requires changing. Also, receiving paper applications from potential candidates is a tedious and cumbersome process, nearly impossible to manage and effectively filter out the good from the bad.

Alternatively, using a great company like Ninja Gig enables your company to effectively accept digital job applications online, not to mention helping you quickly filter and organize potential candidates. With the ability to completely customize the application with questions specific to your company, there’s no reason to stay on the paper application bandwagon.
