Many times when I am applying for a job, I am required to complete an application.  Usually, within the application, they ask for information of your previous employment history.  When I come to this question, I feel as though I should just staple my resume to the application because it provides a much better detailed explanation of my employment history.  Do you think stapling my resume to an application is a good idea?  Will it hurt my chances of getting a job?  Will it look unprofessional?  Will they think I'm too lazy to properly complete the application?  What do you think?

Actually, you should fill in that application and that's it. No other things attached because this is the purpose of an application. To select the relevant info about you for a better processing and future selection of candidates. I would definitely recommend you to make a short resuming of your job experience just for situations like this. If you have some explanations to give, use less words which say more. The job application is not a place to develop this topic either. They will ask you about your reasons for leaving a job during the interview Wink

I think submitting your resume with your application depends on the job you are applying for.  For example, if you are applying for an entry level position, I would complete the job application, fill in the employment history without submitting your resume.  However, if you are applying for an upper level position, such as a manager, then include your resume along with the application.  Basically, the higher the job position, the more you need to impress the person who is doing the hiring.
