Dear Theo - got the job - the Executive summary works!

Discussion in 'Jobseekers' started by itsyandbitsy, Oct 19, 2011.

  1. Just thought I would share some good news. Revamped my statement and used executive summaries for the first time. Got 2 interviews from 3 applied for. The executive summary made me focus more and remember other stuff that I'd done and not put in my statement.

    So thanks for the good advice here on TES [​IMG]

    You're a star, a twinkly star!
    Super, super, super!
    (Don't think I don't appreciate you - the big star STILL won't copy at present.)
    Aha! It just has - now let's see how long that lasts!
    Exactly what I say - see, I was right! (I hope Mrs TG is reading this - she thinks I am never ever right on anything. Henpecked, that's me.)
    Now go and read this thread - and then bump it.
    Got a Job Offer? What to do now . . .
    Best wishes

    I do Application and Interview one-to-ones, and also contribute to the Job Application Seminars. We look at application letters, executive summaries and interviews, with practical exercises that people really appreciate.
    I am timetabled for the October 22nd Win that teaching job seminars - see you there!
  3. 1) Huge congrats! It's SO exciting, isn't it?!
    2) For any doubters reading: yes. The executive summary really does work. Do it!
