What does it mean to apply for a job?
When applying for a job, you typically fill out a form (also called a job application) in order to communicate with an employer that you are interested in the position.
This is the first step in acquiring a job.
How do I apply for a job?
To apply for a job you will need to fill out an application that will tell employers about past work experience, skills, education, and personal information. This can be done on a paper application if you go into the place of business that you'd like to apply for. Nowadays, most job applications are online applications, meaning you can fill them out electronically through a job board (ex. Indeed, Monster, Glassdoor, etc) or directly through the company's website and they will be delivered to the person doing the hiring for that position.
