Applying yourself...

It's been a while since I've filled out an application form, my last two job applications were CV and interview based. If you are about to fill in an application form and looking for some tips, then "Apply yourself" on the View from the Hill blog has some very good tips.

My favourite has to be the following; "Use the Person Specification and Job description they have provided to compose the person/supporting statement (the big blank box). Make sure you cover each point on the person specification, and use an example from previous experience to highlight your competence in this area"

This post is well worth a read if you're completing an application form for a job.
