Application forms are the documents that recruiters ask applicants to fill out during the initial stage of the application process. This form is usually prepared by any of the following:
- a recruiter;
- a hiring manager;
- an employer;
- a human resource manager or staff;
- a recruitment or headhunting agency;
- the leader of a non-profit organization;
- owners or managers of banks, insurance companies, lending companies, and other financial institutions.
An application form can contain as many parts as the person preparing it deems necessary. Since an application form must reflect the type of needs that the nature of the application or thing applied for require. That is why, if you are the one creating this form for your organization, you must at least learn the basic elements which a standard application for must have and those are the following:
- Title or Heading – This spells out what kind of application form it is. If you wish to simplify things, you may simply write or indicate the heading as “Application Form”. You cannot do without this heading since this aids you in the filing process. Additionally, categorization and organization would be effectively done if all your documents, and not just your application forms, are labeled neatly and clearly. One important thing to remember in making your heading is that you must make it look prominent so that it will be easy to spot. Thus, the font size must be huge enough for it to be conspicuous and if you deem it necessary, it would also be advisable to use bold letters as well as simple and non-cursive fonts.
- Applicant’s Name and Basic Information – Naturally, an application form would be pointless if there is no space for the applicants’ names. Their basic information is also essential since it is the primary data that you must have in order to process their application more easily.
- Purpose of the Application – Include a space for what type of process, or grant your applicant is applying for. This is important for you to be able to comprehend right away the applicant information you need to look out for so that you can gauge his/her qualifications. Sometimes, application forms do not require a statement of the applicant’s intent. Instead, you can provide them with a list of possible options which they may apply for. In most cases though, one application form is tailored for one specific application purpose.
- Relevant Qualifications – In most application processes, an applicant is required to comply certain requirements or must possess certain qualifications, competencies, certifications, or credentials before he/she will be accepted for whatever he/she is applying for. There’s a reason why there is an application process in the first place, and that is to ensure that person who is granted the request, right, or position would be the ones who deserve such a grant or acceptance. Otherwise, there would be organizational chaos, and the purpose of the organization deciding on the applications’ merits would prove pointless.
- Disclaimer – This is the statement that asks the applicant to indicate whether or not the information they have provided are true, factual, and verifiable. Normally, there is a checkbox beside this statement which the applicant must place a tick on. This ascertains the accuracy of the information they have provided. If they provide you with false information, you may sue them just because of the fact that they signed a form including that disclaimer. After the statement, there is always a blank space for the signature of the applicant on which he/she must ascribe his/her signature.

Loan Application Forms
Applying for loan can be a long and convoluted process since loans necessarily involve money. And whatever involves money is a serious matter which must not be taken lightly. Have you ever wondered how individuals in extreme destitution are able to improve their financial status or, at least, have visibly become more capable at sustaining themselves and their families? How about businesses that were predicted to close down or declare bankcruptcy suddenly rising among the ashes of near extinction? The reason for this is the smart investment of money loaned.
Where exactly do you get loans? Banks, lending institutions, wealthy individuals, and other financial institutions—all these are capable of granting a loan to anyone who can satisfy their requirements.
If you are working as a staff, an accountant, or a manager for any of the above-mentioned money lending institutions, then you must be aware of the necessity of carefully assessing the various loan applications that come your way. To help you do this with more effectiveness, hand out pre-made loan application forms to your loan applicants and make sure that these forms ask for salient information which are governing factors for the granting and rejecting of a loan application. The following are the key aspects which you must attend to while assessing a loan applicant’s merit:
- Know the specifics of his/her financial circumstances.
- Ask for the specific reason why such applicant needs a loan grant;
- Make comparisons between the reason stated in the application form and the actual information which you have learned about the applicant’s situation. Make phone calls to his/her employers or ask for references from previous tenants, or banks which he/she has previously loaned from. It is of utmost importance that your loan applicant is capable of repaying the amount loaned plus the interest on the exact date which is agreed upon in the loan agreement. For the sake of clarification, a loan agreement is a contract that specifies the terms and conditions of the loan granted.This is usually signed by both the lender and the loanee after the lender has decided to approve or grant the loan to a specific individual or organization.
- If your application form is not sufficient to provide you with the necessary information about your applicant’s character, you can always ask them for references whom you can connect with and make character inquiries to.

Job Application Forms
When you are a recruiter, a hiring manager, or an employer, the act of weeding out the best possible employees among the job applicants lining up for the vacant position in your company can be a difficult and sweat-breaking task. This is made especially difficult if your recruitment strategies is bereft of any organized methods and formal documents and procedures.
If you want to lighten the burden of assessing each applicant’s qualifications, you can opt to use job application forms. Job application forms allow you to examine the pertinent skills and competencies of each applicant without having to read their carefully constructed resumes and CVs.
In relation to this, resumes and CVs tend to be tailored in such a way that highlights only the positive points of the applicant. That is why, for the sake of objective assessment, you must use a standard application form that specifically asks for all the information that you may need. This way, your applicants have a little margin of chance to lie about their employment history, skills, or their educational background.
If you want to know how a job application form would necessarily look like, you need to know at least the basic categories or elements of a job application form. To help guide you, here are the basic parts of a job application form:
- The heading which spells out the words: “Job Application Form”. This heading must be the first part of the job application form and must be at the centermost and uppermost part of it. It must be conspicuous and easily detectable that’s why you have to set it in a font size that is larger than the rest of the texts on the form. Also, bold fonts are recommendable too.
- The space for the basic information of the applicant such as their name, address, contact number, and email address
- The educational background section
- The employment history section
- The references section
