Probably a stupid question but...

    I am applying for a job at a lovely independent school and I have no person specification to work with but I do have a job description.
    I used the wording form the advert for my execuctive summary.
    Should I use the exact language from the job spec or just use it as a guide to make sure I've covered all my points?
    I always get good advice here and I will only torture myself if I don't ask.

    You didn't start Dear Theo, so he's obviously missed this one (unless as I post I notice he's noticed anyway and replied- as happened the other day!).
    Do you mean the exact wording in your ES or on the additional info/personal statement etc.?
    If they've provided info. I would use 'their terminology' but if you're adapting a generic Job Spec. use your own judgement as to which terminology.
