    Default Selection criteria

    Just a quick question, I am applying for a job and they have asked for my selection criteria, do I find the selection criteria in job description and answer the questions on a word document? I have only ever done it once and it was a drop down box, so a little confused! Can't ask anyone else as no one knows I am looking for a new job!
    Thank u in advance!!

    Yep, the selection criteria should be in the companies job description/package.
    I usually do it on a seperate word document with each selection criteria requirement as a heading and answer following.
    In my cover letter I just state something along the lines of... "my answers outlining your required selection criteria is attached/enclosed" etc.
    Hope that helps.

    yep - what withlovesionbhan said

    - a short covering letter
    - your resume
    - the selection criteria seperate and each one individually addressed


    Good luck

    Yep, just title it 'Responses to Selection criteria' and attach as a word document.

    Make sure you,also address it appropriately too.

    All too often I get applications where the person has said, in my role as ABC I was required to do ZYZ as per 'insert selection criteria'.

    The best way to address it is using the STAR method

    Situation
    Task
    Action
    Result

    Good luck with your application!!!
