Research Officer – TAS Government Resume and 2 page application

Home » Case Studies » Research Officer – TAS Government Resume and 2 page application

After recently moving interstate, my client was seeking a research position within the Tasmanian government. Though experienced and capable, the existing documentation did not adequately highlight his key strengths. In addition to strengthening his resume, the position required a two-page short application letter addressing the following key selection criteria:

    1. Sound knowledge and understanding of the State coronial system or the ability to quickly acquire that knowledge
    2. Experience with extracting detailed information from a range of sources and recording it systematically in databases
    3. High-level research and analytical skills with the proven ability to resolve complex issues and make sound and appropriate recommendations, including a good understanding of research ethics and research design
    4. The ability to extract and interpret data to produce standardised and ad hoc reports
    5. High-level written communication skills enabling the accurate and timely preparation of documentation, reports, correspondence, and briefings. Ability to write for and publish on the Web
    6. Well-developed oral communication and interpersonal skills, with the proven ability to effectively liaise, consult, and work with a broad range of clients and stakeholders.  Ability to work within a team
    7. Well-developed organisational skills, including the proven ability to prioritise and manage variable workloads, using initiative and judgment to achieve outcomes

During our consult, I worked with the client to understand his highly technical abilities and contributions to innovative research within the field of neuroscience and assist him with linking specific example of demonstrated experience with these focus areas in mind.
