Selection Criteria Response

SelectionCriteriaResponses

Are you struggling to address key selection criteria when applying for government positions?

Selection criteria responses plays an essential part of the recruitment process when you apply for a position with the Australian Public Service (APS), State or Local government. They are also used as a key recruitment tool by academic institutions, community organisations and some large companies in the private sector. Counting for up to 60% of the recruitment process, addressing these criteria should not be taken lightly.

Selection criteria responses are statements that describe the qualifications, knowledge, skills, abilities and experience that are required for the position advertised. You are required to respond to these questions by describing how you meet the requirements of the position, providing examples of specific situations. There are different types of criteria and some employers will focus on your qualifications or your work skills while others will be based on your experience. The most important aspect of writing selection criteria is to provide evidence or proof through relevant examples. You will often be required to respond within a word or page limit.

Writing selection criteria responses can be a very time-consuming and complex task, which explains why so many people seek out the professional services of Resumes for Results. Our Career Consultants are experts in this important area and are highly skilled in preparing successful government applications in accordance with the government selection requirements such as the STAR model. We are also highly skilled in using alternative models such as CAR or SAO.

Being a national organisation we are able to assist clients across Australia, including Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth, Adelaide, Darwin, Townsville, Toowoomba, Rockhampton, Sunshine Coast, Newcastle, Central Coast, Wollongong and Gippsland.

Our process involves a personal consultation during which we act as a facilitator enquiring into your background and asking for specific examples for each separate criteria. Based on the information provided by you, we create a personalised statement tailored to the specific job application.

  • A personal consultation with one of our Career Consultants, either face-to-face or by phone/email/Skype;
