2-Step Application Process

2-Step Application Process


A 2-Step Application Process splits a job application into two parts to alleviate the stress applicants feel when asked to fill out a long list of information right away. The initial part of the 2-step process is what applicants see when they click "apply" and they are only asked bare minimum information up front. Some disqualifiers may be added in order to sort applicants within an applicant tracking system based on whether or not they meet those qualifications. The second portion of the application will ask for more in-depth details such as employment history, references, and education level. Still, employers should avoid asking for sensitive information, like Social Security Numbers, until later in the application process or when they're ready to run employment or credit checks on an applicant they intend to hire.
