Hi There, would you still recommend that employers to use applications for recruiting specific to student positions? I know it helps maintain a fair process from discrimination, but these days resumes seems to be the norm. Also, if applications are still needed, do you have a standard form that you can provide?
Resumes are definitely the norm, however, in certain sectors application forms are still dominant, such as fast food, but this is usually limited to higher-turnover or “first job” type environments.
HR Insider has tools and resources to help you with unconscious bias, discrimination, and other pitfalls that could impact your hiring and/or selection processes.
I’ve attached a sample WORD application form you can download and edit to use at your organization. (https://hrinsider.s3.amazonaws.com/wp-content/uploads/2022/09/15111458/Employment-application.docx)
