Job-applications.com is offering a scholarship designed to assist working parents currently enrolled in higher education. The $1,000 scholarship will be issued once a year, with this year’s deadline being December 15 and winner announced December 30, 2013. The scholarship will be awarded to a qualifying working parent that is attending college or other accredited post-secondary education institution.  

To qualify, an application must be submitted along with a 600 to 1000 word essay on three key factors describing how to successfully balance parenthood, working and excelling in school. Applications for the Scholarship are currently being accepted and details on eligibility are located on the website.  The application process takes as little as 20 minutes, and all of the details and official rules are available on the site.

“I am excited about starting a scholarship program as a way to give back to the online community that visits our site every day,” said Doug Crawford, President of the company. “We are thrilled to be able to reward a working parent that has made a commitment toward furthering their education.”

Recently, Job-Applications.com launched the Employee Video Library, the newest resource on its website. “It was during the process of building this library that the scholarship initiative was launched,” Crawford stated. “After hearing the real life stories of people trying to balance work, life and education, we realized that we could help.”

This new area of the Job-Applications.com showcases hundreds of former employees who give insight on applying for, interviewing with, and getting hired at many popular companies in the fast food, retail, supermarket, department store, as well as many other industries.

Job-applications.com, the leading job application resource, enables job seekers to submit more job applications in less time – all free of charge. By having access to over a thousand company applications, along with first hand interview experiences from people who have been there, job seekers can be better prepared for the interview and hiring process.

How it works

Job-applications.com lets you start the job hunt right from the comfort of your home. With access to thousands of job applications from top employers, Job-applications.com allows you to print, complete, and even if you make a mistake reprint the application. Looking professional and putting your best foot forward with a clean, crisp application is just the beginning to your job hunt. Using Job-applications.com lets you apply for multiple jobs with different companies at no cost to you!

Instead of spending valuable time at each location where there is a potential job available filling out your application, you can simply be ahead of the curve, by bringing in your completed application and turn it in to the company’s manager or HR department. This way the company hiring can spend more time on you during the interview, rather than gathering the information for the job application.

Job-applications.com additionally gives you the leverage of knowing your prospective company before your interview. It gives you the insider information on the company’s hiring process. The vast video library is made up of interviews with former employees who provide insight and knowledge into the job application and interview process at leading companies who are hiring across the nation. These videos will help you succeed in your interview with the company since you’re learning from someone who has been there! Along with our extensive portfolio of company applications, listed alphabetically or by industry, we provide job positions that are available, in-depth background on each company who is hiring, interview questions and answers, interview tips from former employees, and tips on getting hired at the company.
