    General advice - go to JobSeekers Forum, open the Welcome thread and read the Shortlisting clickables in there.
    Specific advice for internal candidate: sell yourself as though it were another school.
    So many internals undersell, because they think Well, they know what I do! That doesn't work. Both in the application and in the interview, spell it out in full.
    Very best wishes for this!
