Incomplete Employment Application
What is an Incomplete Employment Application?
An Incomplete Employment Application is a job application that has not been filled out all the way. It is most likely the result of an applicant abandoning their job application.
What are the reasons you may see an incomplete application?
Applicants may decide to leave the application for a number of reasons such as:
- The length of the application. If it's too long, they may not have time to complete it or they may lose interest.
- The level of detail it's asking for. Too much detail may turn an applicant off to the job or they may be filling it out somewhere where they don't have access to all the information the job ad is seeking.
- The types of questions being asked. The applicant may not feel comfortable answering the questions if they're too personal or seem unrelated to the job opening.
- Technical errors. The computer may have frozen, the internet may have gone out, etc. when filling out an online application.
