OK, so the conference season is over and Parliament is back in business.
Maybe you are thinking of trying to get a job working for an MP?
A couple of years ago we wrote a guide on how to make the very best of your application for a job with an MP. It is still our most popular guide and always worth reading in detail BEFORE you even start to write your application.
Many of the lessons may seem obvious but we reckon that 5 out of every 6 people applying are STILL sending in applications which stand them no chance of a job.
By the way, the lessons in that guide will be just as useful to those of you looking to move on to work outside Parliament. Of course your experience here will look good on your CV but all that will be worth nothing if your application letter is full of howlers!
