Hi Theo, I have done a search to see if I can get an answer to this Q but to no avail. I am currently applying for a job that has no room for a personal statement on the application form. I had already prepared my covering letter before the application form arrived which is already over a page long - it did not explicitly address the person specification as I expected to put this in the application form (although some parts would lend themselves to being put under the relevant headings). So now I have a dilemma - do I re-write it, using the headings style approach I normally use for applications forms (detailing how I meet each criteria)? Or is there another expected approach in this situation? Many thanks!
