Dear Theo (and others) Executive Summary and 3 page long Personal Spec!

Discussion in 'Jobseekers' started by Di_1985, May 20, 2011.

  1. Hi Theo and all,
    I am trying to compile an Executive Summary for a role where the personal spec is 3 pages of A4 long! The exec summary is only to be 1 page long in line with Theos advice and try as I might I cannot condense their points! Any advice please? Would using only some of their points be counterproductive? It may look as though I am trying to hide a lack of experience the points I do not mention!? The only thing I could maybe do is to summarise under each of the personal specs sectional headingsi.e 'reviewing teaching and learning' rather than addressing each point within that? Perhaps I have just answered my own question lol Advice still appreciated :)

    E-mail Julia on advice@tsleducation.com for how to book a meeting with me personally.

    Look forward to seeing you!

    Normal
    0




    false
    false
    false

    EN-GB
    X-NONE

    That's because you used Ctrl+V to paste, instead of using the little icon with a T.
    You could try having the first one as Learning and Teaching . . .

  6. Oh I see. I have just used the headings as they use them so they can compare to their own documents easier.

    Fine then - I thought it was your personal grouping of things.
