1st job application in 7years. For my 1st contracted fulltime job in 5years. The person specification part has taken me a week to prepare and I still don't have anything half decenr written down. I exhausted and fed up! I think I'm over thinking as I'm applying because it's perfect for me, and would be really disappointed not to get it!
If it was the first in 7 years then it's understandable, but if you are set on getting a job, then you'll need to become more efficient. In the run-up to the May deadline it'll be 2-3 per day, if you want a decent shot at it.
