Surprisingly little material seems now to be around on the subject of completing application forms. It is as if a lot of the big Careers websites have decided to rely on the fact that many large companies produce their own guidelines.
Fortunately, the University of Cumbria has found its own solution in the form of a voiceover presentation narrated by myself and my colleague Joanne Watson. You can view it at https://stream.cumbria.ac.uk/ap/careers/AppForms/index.html (n.b. answer ‘no’ if you get a security warning on the way in.)
The result is unlikely to draw the interest of Holywood producers but it does give you a decent guide to the business of filling in those pesky forms!
