Dear Theo, (or anyone else with words of wisdom to offer!) After successfully using an executive summary to help me win my last job, I am currently putting one together for a new job application. However, this person spec contains a huge section headed 'personal qualities'. This includes things like presence, warmth, sense of humour, energy, sensitivity. I am really unsure how to word my executive summary to 'prove' that I am all these things. Since they are not tangible things, it is really difficult! Can you offer any words of wisdom please? Also, a second question, in a similar vein... I am also applying for another job, where there is no person spec at all, and the job description is of a very 'legal' nature, ie 'to teach the subject in line with the conditions provided in the burgundy book and carry out other duties as required by the headteacher.' I am completely stumped as to how to write an executive summary for this, or even a decent application tailored to the job, since they give no indication of what they are looking for in a member of staff! What do you advise in this situation? Thanks in advance to Theo, or anyone else who has useful suggestions.
