As a candidate for a job, be careful when you are asked to fill out an application. Believe it or not, employers still look at how perspective employees fill out an application as an indicator as to how they will perform. Sure, your penmanship may not be the best, but make it a point to be thorough, neat, and accurate. So, when asked to fill out an application, take a minute to review the form and take your time when you actually do it. It is a reflection of YOU.
ps: always have a reliable black or blue (NOT red or pink) pen.
