The application (standard) type?

    I'm applying to a few jobs and many have decided to use the County's application form. I typed all my details in the first one, e.g. name, employment history, education, referees etc. However, it does say write in black ink (for photocopying), but I reasoned that they wouldn't expect people to type it as it's quite tricky to get all the boxes formated and insert ticks and cross out options.


    Any ideas? Should i write the rest or continue with the typing?

    Sorry I can't see your problem.
    Are you typing already? In which case why can't you continue?
    Surely typing is black ink?
     
  4. I think you're taking the term 'write in black ink' literally - I am quite sure that it will be equally acceptable to type it.

    This. Yes i did read the 'write' and start to panic i'd have to do it all again :) I'll keep going with the typing!
     
  6. I got what you meant, although I had to re-read it! [​IMG]They should have put 'complete the form' - panic not!
