Dear Theo - sending a paper application form

Discussion in 'Jobseekers' started by hodge83, Apr 16, 2012.

  1. I have just completed a paper application form (requested by the school), and they have also asked for a CV and a letter of application. I remember my careers advice from school myself, which said staple CVs, letters and everything else, but I have been advised by a colleague not to staple anything, and to use paper clips if necessary!
    Any advice on what I should do here would be greatly appreciated, I need to post it tomorrow!

    Yes, usual practice these days is to use paper clips as they take the forms apart to photocopy.
    Do also number and name each sheet in case they get separated.
  3. Thanks very much for that, it stopped a panic!

    Yes, Lara is correct.
    But . . .
    If you had read all the clickables in the Welcome thread to get advice on how to write a good application, you would have known that already, as it's in there!
    Better read them now, and also make sure that you have read this thread:
    Dear Theo: Cover Letter..
    Best wishes
