The eBay Application Process

eBay has one of the simplest and most applicant-friendly job applications that you will ever see. If you already have your resume and cover letter prepared, it should take you no more than 10 minutes to complete.

For this application guide, we applied for a position as a Software Engineer at eBay. While your application experience should be very similar to ours, it's possible that it may vary a little bit depending on the position that you apply for.

Before you can begin the eBay job application, you will need to create an account on their hiring site. To create an account, you will need to provide your email address, an account password, and an answer to a security question. The registration process is quick and painless, and should only take about a minute of your time.

Once your account is created, you will have the opportunity to provide your resume and cover letter. If you haven't already, take some time to customize both documents for eBay and the position that you are applying for. This is your opportunity to demonstrate your passion for the company, and explain exactly how your previous experiences have prepared you for this position. If you don't have a resume (you really should, though), you can choose to create a profile on their site with your contact information, work history, and education. However, by simply filling out the application, it is much more difficult to communicate why you think you are a great fit for the job.

At this point, your application will be complete (we told you it was easy). Take some time to review all of the information that you provided. Once you're happy with what you have, you can go ahead and submit it.
