How to win with Selection Criteria

What do I need to write in a Selection Criteria response?

Your response should demonstrate your capabilities against the selection criteria using specific examples from your experience.

Your examples need to address the specific wording of the criteria. They should also be clearly relevant to the duties you would be performing in the role you're applying for.

How will my selection criteria response be judged?

In most cases your application will be assessed by a selection panel.

The panel will score your application so it's important that you have a strong, relevant response to each and every criterion.

What response will give me the best chance of getting to interview?

The most successful responses fulfil all criteria with relevant, evidence-based claims.

It should strictly follow instructions about length and format, and conform with conventions of the government tier or sector you're applying to - e.g. federal/state/local, higher education, health or academia.
