Executive Statement vs. Supporting statement

Discussion in 'Jobseekers' started by Siobhanquest, Jan 17, 2016.

    Hi, I am in the process of applying for an advisory teaching role. The concept of an executive statement is new to me but I think it is fantastic. Does it take the place of a supporting statement or should I include both. Would there not be a huge amount of overlap?

    Include both

    Not huge, no. The E.S. will hoover-up all the points in the Job Description or Person Spec that would make the statement look really bitty. It will be brief, bullet points.

    Your statement will be more leisured, concentrating on major points, expanding them, talking about your philosophy of teaching perhaps.

    I'll post here all the links about applications, so you can read or re-read the E.S. advice

    Questions to ask at the end of your interview


    On here we have a very nice tradition that when you actually get a job, you started a brand-new thread (not adding it to this one - a brand-new thread) where you told us your good news. You call it Dear Theo - I got that job! and this gives everyone a chance to congratulate you. It also gives them hope and inspiration for their own jobseeking, to see you successful.

    Make sure you congratulate someone when you see a thread like that!

    So I will end by saying that we look forward to seeing your Dear Theo - I got that job!

    Best wishes
