Executive Summary, paraphrasing?

Discussion in 'Jobseekers' started by minnieminx, Apr 8, 2012.

    Can I summarise/paraphrase the points on the person spec? They have massively long winded points which take up a lot of space.

    E.G.

    Ability to use a range of data (in-school, local and national), on
    attainment and progress to identify and target areas for
    improvement and set ambitious expectations for pupil
    achievement and a clear vision of how this will be brought about as
    part of whole school improvement.

    is just one point...of many.

    And, question 2 now:

    Do I include every way in which I meet each point?

    My statement in the application form will address the points on the job description and what was requested in the letter to applicants. So the exec summary is the only place the person spec. points will be addressed.

    I seem to have done too much and have too much to write.

    Sorry, I used to be good at writing applications, now I seem to have lost all clue!

    Question 3!

    If a particular piece of experience (is that the right term?) fits several points in the person spec, do I mention it more than once?

    Or in the, seriously needed, guise of space saving, do I just mention it once in whichever point has most space?

    You can only see one post at a time when trying to reply . . .
    Yes, course you can! If you look back at the example on the How To Get Shortlisted clickable, those are not what they said, they are condensed, and if necessary grouped.

    Number 2:
    Can you not prioritise, summarise and group there too? I mean, instead of writing everything, choose the main ones (those most important to them probably), then see if they can be grouped or condensed.

    Only include it twice if there is nothing else for either of the points, so as not to leave something unanswered.

    Brilliant, thank you. I knew it couldn't be as hard and long winded as it seemed!
