Dear Theo and Everyone: Person Spec

Discussion in 'Jobseekers' started by boperella, Jun 18, 2011.

  1. Just a quicky,
    If their person spec is 2 pages long can my executive summary be 2 pages long in response? It is seeminly impossible to fit my responses to ALL their requirements onto 1 page.
    Thanks for all your help and support people, in times like this i think of Dori; 'Just keep swimming...'

    An E.S. is supposed to be an At-A-Glance document. Having people turn over a page removes that advantage.
    So keep it to the one side.
    You need to:
    • condense what they say
    • group two or more together
    • prioritise and omit
    But get it down to the one side - in normal size print!
    Good luck
