I suspect you want to construct an on-line job application form or application acceptor rather than an application. If so, be aware that good design is essential: the applicant must not be flooded with questions he thinks he has answered in his CV, nor must the process be so difficult that only the most despearate will go through with it - unless you want only the most desperate.

set up a form on a page.
asking for exactly the information you want for all positions.

do NOT require data that will be in a cv being attached.

best to set up 2 forms, one for with attached cv, one for without.

specify what format attachments must be in to be accepted. ( .doc, .pdf, .txt, .html )

you may want to set up a basic login scheme to keep track, and allow applicants to store thier cv data in a profile you will have access to any time you need to hire.

If you use FrontPage, most current version, there is a form template wizard that will run you through all the fields you want in your form. You can then have the form sent to your email address when the user clicks the "submit" button. The server on which your WEB resides must have FrontPage extensions installed.

Well, a Job Application is just an HTML <FORM>, so read up on how that works. I also recommend using <TABLE>s to get the layout right (apologies to the CSS purists out there).

My employer wanted an almost exact copy of their paper form on their website, so the HR staff didn't have to deal with two different versions of job applications. Our online job application form asks for a LOT of information, but that's what the HR staff wanted.

The form data is passed to a script. This is what does the real work...it takes all the form data and sends an HTML email that almost exactly mimics our paper job application when printed out. We're sort of low-tech here, so the job application data doesn't go directly into a database.

My first attempt at this was based on "FormMail" from Matt's Script Archive--

Good luck.
