The Essex Application pack

Recognise. Celebrate. Succeed.

Essex CV front cover

The Essex Application pack is a completely self-contained resource that takes you through completing competency-based and statement-based job application forms.

Many employers design application forms to assess your suitability, rather than asking for a CV, so you will likely find that in many cases your focus will be on the application.

What's in the Essex Application pack?

The pack contains a sample job description and example application forms, giving you key things to think about to best sell yourself to employers. It should not take long to get some major benefits from it and we would strongly encourage you to read the whole Essex Application pack (.pdf) and ensure you follow the checklist when you’re writing each tailored application. Recognise the full extent of your skills and experience and sell yourself in a way that does you justice. Be proud of what you have achieved.
