Open the Google Sheet that you just copied in your Google Drive. Rename the file from
Copy of File Upload Forms to
Job Applications since we are building a form for our company where candidates can upload their resume.
It is always a good idea to assign a proper name to your Google Sheet since it will become easier to find the spreadsheet that is storing form response once you've created multiple forms in your Drive.
Authorize Google Script
The File Upload Forms is written with Google Apps Script and it uses Google Services - Gmail, Google Drive and Google Sheets - for the form workflow.
You'd therefore have to authorize the Google Script so that it can access these services on your behalf. This has to be completed once.
