I'm looking at applying for an international job for August this year. I'm not particularly fussy about where I go, so I've been looking at various different adverts. I don't quite understand what they are asking for as it's so different for each school - I need a translation. If it just asks for a CV and references, do I assume they don't want the usual quite long application statement/letter (like you'd send on a UK application form), or that they DO? In my mind, it's obvious that they'd want some sort of application statement, but it seems that some of the adverts are VERY direct, so I don't want to get it wrong and be dismissed immediately for being unable to interpret an advert. I have searched these boards, but there is no clear answer on it. I'm a rookie at this international malarky, please be kind. Thanks.
