In today’s economy, many students need to submit their resumes to employers to land a job. Resume and application forms provide employers with written evidence of a prospective employees’ qualifications and skills. Generally, a resume contains all of the information acquired on an application form, except that it usually fits onto one page with various templates.
Some employers prefer a resume over an application form while others require an applicant to fill out both.
