Dear Theo and all, I'm in the process of writing my latest application. Having done really well perfecting the art of the executive summary I have hit a stumbling block with the latest one. This job has over 20 bullet points on its person specification. So far I have done as suggested in the clickables but since the person specification is so long and each bullet not easy to summarise in a smaller bullet point, I can't see how I can fit a well tailored answer with "your requirements" and "my experience" in on one page. I know some of their points are covered extensively in my letter of application ("enjoy working with young people") and some of these points are difficult to summarise on an application ("understand current and forthcoming educational issues") so I'm not sure what is best. So, Theo, in the format you prefer, 1) Should I cherry pick those that I haven't covered extensively in my letter or not take anything as given and cover as much as possible? 2) What is the smallest font I should use that won't really annoy anyone trying to read it? 3) Would it be better to use their sub-headings as the "your requirements" section and then bullet point my qualities/experience matching them up to the person spec? If none of the above, what should I do? Thanks again!!
