Why the in depth employment history on applications for employment?
Times have changed to a rapid growth of internet usage for employment procedures. In most cases you cannot go to your local hardware store with a resume and ask for an interview on the spot anymore. Procedure requires an extensive application of employment from the business website. Which depending up the position may require an hour or more of time spent filling out a dreadfully long application and questionnaire. Furthermore, your "Resume" is pretty much worthless, because most sites make you fill in all the blanks regardless of it being on your resume. So, why is our time being wasted?
In cases like you are describing. It is best if you apply for a job that you know well and you have experience. You will have no problem getting the job. Also, if you have some training relate to the position you want. It will be helpful to your new boss to place you in the right position. First find out what are the requirements for the job. Then, mention in your resume what classes you took , or what training you have. Good luck.

I understand using months and years but why do some companies feel the need to ask for a specific day when applying? It's so annoying as I never remember my exact beginning and end dates.
