    Do you NEED to? NO

    However, you should.

    Heck, you don't even have to fill in the entire job application to be considered.

    While the info might be the same, I think it will look better on you if you attach your resume to the job application.

    I agree with CaptainForest; you should submit a resume.
    There are many sites online with different types of resumes to use.
    If the job application isn't going to be faxed anywhere, such as from a State Employment Agency, or Employment Commission, then I have written in the application with words such as "Please see Resume". Then attach the resume with the job application.
    This saves a lot of time with applications such as headings of:
    Education; instead of writing all this down again, just use the above phrase.
    Past Employment.
    References, both work and non-work.
    I do wish you the best of luck, and the more applications you fill out, the better chances of landing a job.
