    Hubby doesn't earn one of the higher paying fifo jobs but his does add up as a previous poster said just about everyone works 12 hr days, do that for 8-28 days straight..

    Selection criteria is a list of requirements that a government job will list for the potential candidates. For example, "Proven ability to use clear, concise language in correspondence as well as including content fitting for the purpose and audience when preparing written briefs and reports."

    You then have to address this with reference to yourself in about half a page and give them examples of why you are capable of this and how you may have done so in the past. You might have say 10 selection criteria that you would have to address in addition to your resume and cover letter.

    I had about 12 I think.

    Under $20 p/hour in the disability and mental health sector. Caring for people are being paid less than a fast food worker. Definitely changing industry when I return to work in a decade or so. Studying now to ensure that.
    I really enjoyed the people and experienced a fair amount of job satisfaction but sadly the money does not make up for the high stress and at times, potentially unsafe conditions.

    Also teachers in WA get 12 weeks annual leave in their contracts. But I know most teachers will do some prep work etc during these weeks anyway!

    Agree DH is FIFO 4/4 weeks, we make around USD $250 000 after tax a year as he works on an international Oilrig we are paid by the US including health benefits. It's hard at times but yes he gets 6 months at home and gets paid good money to be here. It's definitely hard ill have 2 under 18 months soon and since DH works out if the country there is maybe 2 20 minute phone calls the entire time.

    I know but I've only been operating for 6months and the way my accountant has helped me set everything up, something do do with my profit margin, in times I'm unable to work or I'm on holidays etc I can draw from that money.... I charge to cover my cost of product, my $20ph and I think like 25% profit margin (maybe not %25 I can't remember lol).... So hopefully that will work out if/when I need it :/

    And it's also a sacrifice I'm willing to make to be with my lo as much as I can!

    About $70-75 an hour in IT - but that's a full time position, so have approximated from salary. If I were contracting I'd want a bit more, so as to pay my own super and allow for public holidays, sick days etc.

    I know the company I worked for now gets applicants to fill it out right before the interview, on the spot.
    And there is the reason getting someone else to do your application or selection criteria is a problem.

    I've worked in the government sector where I've vetted applications and and done interviews. The secret to answering selection criteria is to give an example of where you've displayed the skill set being described (eg.verbal/non verbal communication).

    While some people do present better on paper, and some people present better in person, in most jobs, you need to be able to do both.
