The Application Form

Mike finished reading the application form and then set it down. It was a nervous moment. He needed this job. It was only (A)_________ his only source of income during this last term of college. Some of his friends were working three or even four days a week. Mike didn’t understand how they could cope with their course work. But (B)_________ him enough time to study. It was ideal.

He picked up the form again. If successful, he’d have to help with a touring market, selling soap products. He’d travel to a different town each weekend (C)_________ Saturday until late Sunday night — depending how far away the market was that weekend.

Again he put the form down, scanned the pages once more, and got his pen ready. He was still anxious. For a start, he only had one copy. If he made a spelling mistake there was nothing he could do. For a moment he considered trying to create a replica form on his computer. “Why on earth” he pondered aloud "(D)_________ for this?" Jim overheard him. “Because it is a real test Mike — everybody faces the same form. Tidy, easily readable handwriting tells an employer quite a lot about the candidate applying for the job. If a form comes (E)_________ packed into a given space, mistakes crossed out etc. — an employer will know so much more about who is applying for a job. Online ap­plications all look the same.”

“I suppose so” — said Mike, yet again picking up and scrutinizing the form “but it’s only a job selling soap in markets — not working for the Civil Service!”

“Whatever!” laughed Jim. “My advice is (F)_________ two or three practice runs. You need this job right? Ok — then take time to do the job properly”.
