Dear Theo - Using Exec Summary for non-teaching job

Discussion in 'Jobseekers' started by supply slave, Apr 17, 2012.

  1. May I ask where the ES idea came from. I'm currently applying for a non-teaching post (as well as teaching) and was thinking of using an ES for this post.
    All this form filling is making my eyeballs bleed I am staring at this damn screen so much.
    Never mind ASDA to look forward to at 06.00

    The ES is, I believe, Theo's own very personal invention.
    The idea of matching one's capabilities to the Job Spec is an easily readable format couldn't hurt for any job though, in my opinion.

    Exactly, Lara.
    For both points!
    So off you go, Supply Slave and start doing another one. . .[​IMG]

    I've used it in all my job applications. The Uni job I applied for over here required (a ridiculously long) one but other posts have been impressed by the use of it. Makes life far easier. Go for it. Will keep our fingers crossed for you x x
