Hello everyone:



What should I say: I was a bit too slow off the mark in applying for the job/to apply for the job, or just applying for the job?

They all seem correct.
Thanks

    I was a bit too slow off the mark in applying for the job. Yes.
    I was a bit too slow off the mark to apply for the job. Perhaps. (They turned your application down because you missed the deadline.)
    I was a bit too slow off the mark applying for the job. OK, colloquial.
