CBE Careers | How to Answer Selection Criteria

CBE Careers | How to Answer Selection Criteria

Selection criteria are the list of skills, qualities and experience required for each job.

For applications for jobs in the public service, tertiary education, and the non-government and not-for-profit sectors you will commonly be required to address the selection criteria in a separate document. For many applications for graduate positions, summer vacation and internships selection criteria questions are set in the application form. For all other jobs your cover letter can be used to demonstrate how your skills and experience meet the selection criteria.

Regardless of the type of roles you're applying for, this workshop will help you to prepare a compelling application that demonstrates how you meet the selection criteria for a role. This session will cover how to:

identify the selection criteria for any role;
decide what information to include, and the best examples to use to demonstrate you possess the skill or experience required; and
write a compelling response to the selection criteria.
