Dear Theo: A question about Executive Summary

Discussion in 'Jobseekers' started by rachymac, Jan 14, 2012.

  1. I am currently filling out a job application which has asked for an accompanying letter (no more than 2 sides of A4) to be sent with the application form. Would you recommend writing a letter which fits onto a single page, and then a full-page Executive Summary to go with it? (There was nowhere on the application form to include it, otherwise I would have done.)

    Thanks.

    Write your letter to be less than 2 pages as requested (if you need most of the 2 that's fine) and do the ES as a seperate additional sheet. They don't have to read it but they most likely will x

    Never less than 2 sides for your application letter; you need to sell yourself!
    Do the executive summary as an addition.
    It isn't part of the letter, so you are not going against their 2 page letter edict.
    Let's hope it goes well for you!
    Best wishes.
