I pinged off my application today for the job I have been in for the last few years. Ten gn pages of responses to criterion and an eight page CV.
That's probably too much. However my job is very much task focussed and I needed to talk up the good stuff.
Being the public service I won't know how I went, whether anyone else applied, whether I got to interview, whether I get it without having to interview (remote chance but possibility) etc for about four to six weeks.
