The Application form

When a candidate is ready to apply for one of your jobs, they will click the apply button and be taken to the Application form of the job posting.

This is the perfect place for you to collect the information needed for the initial review. It's important to make this process a smooth and easy experience for your candidates, so let’s take a closer look at the Application form.
 
Application form


Design

The application page inherits the design from the rest of your career site, ensuring a unified look for your visitors. The base uses your secondary and content colour combination that already exists in your global design. Inputs are always white with strong contrasting text colour. If you use a full cover image in the job ad, we inherit it to the form, which is extra neat for candidates going directly to that page.

Colour settings

The background of the application form comes from your Secondary background colour, and the content (basically every text of the form) comes from your Content colour.
Global design settings


To make this as simple for you as possible, you will see a preview of this combination right in the tool when you’re working with the colour settings of your career site. The application form uses the combinations displayed in the second example. 

Colour of inputs

The inputs, meaning the fields where your candidates answer, are always displayed in white.

What if I want to use white as my secondary background? Well no worries, we’ve got you covered! The application page will automatically get a darker colour, so your inputs are still the main event of the page.

Cover image 

If you’re using a full cover image, this image will be displayed at the top of the application form. A full cover is used when the job’s layout style is set to Visual. In the screenshot below, you see the difference in these styles.
