United States Application…This I believe

Everything that irritates us about others can lead us to an understanding of ourselves.–Carl Jung

I get irritated by repeatedly having to fill out each employment place’s application.  Thank goodness for education jobs in PA where there is a standard application.  Thank goodness for the genius who invented ‘cut’ and ‘paste’ too which has made online applications go easier.

I believe in having one standard job application for America.  Just like prospective college students fill out a common application for applying to over a hundred colleges and universities, why not applying this concept for all job seekers? 

Job seekers already have a place to post their virtual resume.  It’s time now to save some time, money, ink, and sanity for the unemployed and get this USApp idea of mine going!

Now if I can figure out how to plug in a widget for readers to invest in my USApp idea…or is that another gizmo that needs to be invented?

Side Bar Post Update May 1, 2009

Today while looking over the newly posted education vacancy listings by the PA School Board Association, I noticed a link that I’ve never seen before for finding jobs in education.  It seems that PA-Educator.net  has some competition.  There’s another place for districts to post openings and have access to potential applicants NATIONWIDE!  It’s a National School Applications Network.  Each state has their own link, like PA’s is PA REAP.net, for the “Regional Education Applicant Placement (REAP) Program allows you to apply once for public school teaching positions throughout the state.”  There are some other sites that post nationwide openings and I will add them when I get a chance.  There was also a tweet today about a site that tells you what each state requires for certification…and another tweet the other day about a site that organizes your job searches….  I’ll add that info too next time.  Technology is great!
