“Application unsuccessful…”

So, I heard about the job application today with an email to inform me that “My application wasn’t successful and I must be disappointed…” (job rejection letters are always a bit patronising…)

Oh well… never mind…

I’ve learned from 13  years in the Civil Service that applying for a job is more about how you word the application form than whether you are actually any good and suitable for the job or not! I think a lot of people must have applied as they only considered the first ‘competency’ (another civil service thing…) out of 5 or 6 competencies that I gave examples on…

At least I now have an up-to-date application form of examples, albeit they probably need a bit of work to shape them into ‘civil service style’…
