Best Way to Incorporate an Example into Selection Criteria

Learning the best way to incorporate an example when responding to key selection criteria.

One of the challenges most jobseekers face when addressing key selection criteria is how best to weave into their selection criteria response an example that is relevant and applicable to the criteria itself and the role too. 

The example should be well-structured using the STAR format (Situation, Task, Action and Result) as well as being easy to read and follow, comprehensible and clear. 

That's also the way the team at Client Centric Executive Employment Solutions write their responses to selection criteria and include examples the right way.

Client Centric, an Australia-wide professional employment services firm offer a service where they will address the key selection criteria for you, and all you have to do is provide them with a copy of your resume, the position description and any relevant working examples, which they can email you as to what they need to know. 

It's pretty straightforward and that's what I love about the service that Client Centric provides. 

Addressing selection criteria isn't easy. But it's not impossible. Remember that the example needs to fit the selection criteria and not be too long-winded and boring. The last thing you want is for the reader to be turned-off because the example is totally irrelevant to the role and the needs of the organisation.

Should you use the same cover letter for every job applied?

When we are job searching, we usually apply for more than one job. Many people send a generic and standard letter and send it out to all positions they want to apply for. This is a quicker and easier option; however, it could also not capture the attention of the employer. When you tailor your cover letter for each application, it demonstrates to the employer that you want to work for their organisation and what you can bring to the role, which will persuade them to consider you.

HOW TO ANSWER THE INTERVIEW QUESTION: Tell Me About Yourself
