    So you have a week to get this done ...

    My advice is to get a couple of friends/acquaintances to check your 'final draft' against the job description and provide objective comments.

    What he said.

    Just use size 76 font and write - 'Cuz i iz da best for da job innit' across the 2 pages.

    Job's a good'un! - plus they will think your well cool and might even give you another promotion.

    The 2 sides of A4 is not important. The content is ... all you need to do is show you grasp the role, and what you will bring to it an dtake it forward. Do not load it with "in the past, I was able to do ...." , load it with " my tactics would be", "what I want to deliver is" etc ....

    Just enough to make it intersting is always enough. Great sales technique is "never say more that you have to" and "listen"
