Why do I need to submit a new application form each time I apply for a job?
Just like a resume, an application form should contain the most up-to-date information, so each time you apply for a job you should complete a new form. This is true even when applying for multiple jobs in different departments at the same time. Remember, the recruiter is assessing your suitability compared to others and you want to ensure they have as much relevant information as possible.
