application for maths job

Discussion in 'Jobseekers' started by tompark1, Jan 25, 2012.

  1. Hi guys, just looking for a bit of help. Im applying for a job and have done a cover letter and am now filling in the application form. In the application form there is a section under supporting information called Skills, Knowledge and Experience. Is this section the cover letter? or independent from it? Furthermore on the person specification for the job there are skills listed (obviously). however only some are assessed by the letter, so I have only included information about them in the letter. So similarly with the part of the personal specification checked under application form, do I only write about those areas in the supporting information of the application and nothing else? This would leave a number of parts of the personal specification that are assessed through references/observation/interview, but that I WONT have covered in the application. Is that correct?

    Help please???

    Appreciate any help that can be given,

    Help is at hand - but not just by asking and us answering for each of you who turns up, it would take too long! So we have it all set out for you to read at your leisure.
    The Welcome thread at the top of the Forum has lots of information - open up the FAQs, and the two shortlisting clickables and read them carefully. You'll find there what you need to produce an effective application.
    Best wishes
