Anyone have any experience/insight into crafting an abstract for a job talk? is it written more like a workshop (Dr. X will present on X, Y, Z) or a manuscript/conference abstract which focuses on only one study? My talk will highlight multiple lines of research which I think will make it more difficult!

Here is my successful one (with certain info eliminated to protect the innocent):
Summary: The presentation first summarizes X, Y, and Z Theories as they relate to TOPIC OF INTEREST. An integrated X-Y Model of TOPIC OF INTEREST is then proposed, with emphasis on my research in SETTING 1 and SETTING 2 samples. I then review my prior work on Z. The presentation concludes with current and future research on an integrated perspective of all three models that is also extended to TOPIC OF INTEREST 2. Importantly, the presentation includes overt discussion of various ways students and faculty have collaborated on my research. As time allows, I will also briefly discuss international opportunities for students, as well as my other two primary lines of research.
