Over the years I have learned that one of the easiest ways to get turned down for a job is by not filling out the company's application completely. This especially pertains to the job history portion of the application. All too many times candidates will put "see resume" in the duties and responsibilities section. It is important to remember that your resume is not the document of record. It is the application form that is the document of record. Always fill in every item and if the item does not pertain to you enter "n/a" in the area so the hiring manager will know you read the question.
