    <font size="2">Dear Theo,</font> <font size="2">Hi,I have followed much advice on the forum, but so far not having much luck with interviews. However, staying positive I am looking further field who ask candidates to fill an online form. Schools then can look here (A pool??). </font>
    <font size="2"> In order to stand out, you are asked to write a snap shot of about 100-120 words. </font>
    <font size="2"> I have put enthusiastic, hardworking, willing to go extra mile etc. but not sure what else to write.

    Tip for next time: you need to put Dear Theo in the title, as I don't always open all the threads that don't say that.
    Sarah, I don't understand this.
    Are you applying to some sort of agency? And you need to write a short pen-portrait about yourself?
    Look in the Interview Tips to see the idea about having some Key Points about yourself, and use those. The ones you have suggested are pretty run-of-the-mill - who is ever going to admit that they are not any of these! I would consider a desire to re-locate to an area to be pretty key.
    Best wishes
