Application forms

When it gets to this bit "Information in Support of Your Application" what do they really want to hear/read?, I hate filling these in on two counts, I'm old and I'm just not at all used to filling them in.

It's hard to be humble when I'm so great...

    It's basically a summary of yourself and a chance to big your self up. What I find useful, is write down all the qualities they want for the job. For example, good team player, good organisational skills blah blah blah.
    Once you have these write a summary about yourself, whilst incuding things you have done in the past (state examples) that prove you have these skills. Also include any lessons learned.

    This is the part where you tell them that you've just managed to ween yourself off crystal meth, and that you've only attacked three people this year.

    well for all the apps ive ever donw there has been plenty of chance to big yourself up, like what roles of responsibility have you held, what achievements etc your strengths

    for this section i put things that i think have been valuable that have not been covered in other sections eg. travelling and all the lessons and skills i learned through that
