Follow directions!

I was recently involved in screening fire department applications and I was amazed to see that 40% of the candidates did not follow the simple directions to include copies of their certifications. Subsequently all of these applications were disqualified from the process.
Also, keep in mind that the people behind the counter at HR are very influential in the hiring process. Be sure to be nice to them!
Lastly, do not staple your resume onto your application in lieu of filling out your work experience. This is a sign of laziness and does not go over too well with the people who are in charge of the hiring process.
Keep these few tips in mind when filling out your applications. There are hundreds of candidates applying for just a few positions. Do not get screened out of the process for silly things.
Good luck to all!!
