  4. Next, create an Application. You can create as many applications as you want. The system will store these for you to use at a later date. This will save your information into the database and make applying for jobs today and tomorrow easier and faster. Just click on Create An Application and name your application so you can identify it later. Fill out the application as if you were applying for a job.
