It seems that there is no standardization for companies on how they collect information from job boards. They may post a job on a board like Monster, but may not have the software on the backend to collect the information from Monster. It can be quite frustrating. I am also unemployed and am quite frustrated each time I have to enter all my information from my resume into a company's database. Some websites can take 30-40 minutes to get through the entire process of form fields.
There is no easy process, but keep your chin up and keep in mind that while it may be frustrating to you, if you follow through you might be out another candidate who was too lazy to enter their information. Good Luck and I hope you find something soon.
