Some jobs have prerequisite questions that you will need to answer as a part of your application
Wouldn’t it be nice if you knew about the job’s basic requirement at the initial stage of application? For example if the job requires you to work in cold storage all day. Prerequisite questions are questions an employer asks right at the start of the hiring process to understand if you are the right fit for the job based on your preferences and for you to recognise if a job is the right fit for you.
If a job requires you to work in cold storage all day, the question might be “Are you willing to work in sub zero temperatures for over 7 hours a day?” For some, that might be okay, but for others, that may be less than ideal.
If a job has prerequisite questions, you must answer the questions in order to apply.
