Why do I need to write an application form for employment after writing a complete resume?

Why do I need to write an application form for employment after writing a complete resume?

  1. For standardisation purposes - so that all applications can take the same format. Much easier to compare then! The CV doesn’t carry a standard format. Their application will!
  2. The legally binding part also - but perhaps slightly lesser an issue.
