I always skip the supervisor blanks. Not sure it stopped me from getting interviews. I’m at T2 now and definitely didn’t fill in any supervisor blanks.

...but at the same time, I don’t want to give all my supervisors names at the outset, just on an application form. Not only for the current position, but at one of my jobs, there are other managers (not my supervisor) who are better at speaking to my skillset, and so they are my references, not her
