Of course, you may be asked to complete an application form instead of submitting a CV and covering letter. Most application forms will include a series of questions for you to answer, or a section asking you to provide information in support of your application. Essentially, the same principles apply as for constructing a good CV: think carefully about what the employer will be interested in and try to provide answers relevant to them. Be clear about your motivations for wanting the job, and give evidence of your relevant skills. When giving an example from your experience to demonstrate a skill or achievement, remember to be specific. Focus on what you actually did within the situation and the outcome of your actions.
