Don't worry it's automatic, I've been on hold at various stages of a recruitment process, and I'll be starting soon. Whatever the next stage is in your process will be sent through shortly if you met the criteria for this stage.

Hi gfisher, hope you get this in time. It is only the 500 word part. Not the extra about experience upto 1200. As I done that. Then emailed them. They will only read the first 500 words. All the heart and soul I put into the extra as well. Good luck. Fiona

Morning gfisher. Answer with your example of when you done something even though colleagues told you not to or didn't need to .and why you done it and the outcome. Use the star method. Situation,Task,Action, Result..But only use 500 words. Ignore the bit in faint type that sayers example 1200 words. I done both , but I didnt need too. Short listing should start tomorrow.

Oh no! With my application I did the first 500 words as the example then the next 600 as my personal statment ment :/ they did not make that clear at all. Do you think I have blown this opportunity??
I'm looking at starting a career and waiting to here from this before I start applying for other jobs as very keen.

Hi helpingworld. I am pleased it wasn't just me. Like you I had already sent my application. Then I asked in a email if that was right. The reply was, they will only be reading the 500 words. Any more in that box will not be looked at. They only want our example to that situation. Thats why the other typing was in light type .Yeah, I spent hours on it. But I think before that box there was a part for us to write down our skills. But I didn't go into great detail as I thought I would expand in that extra 700 . Lol. Where are you hoping to work?
