If you are interested in applying for a position within any one of the many departments within the Australian Public Service (APS), your application will always need to include your resume, as well as evidence that you meet the required selection criteria. Depending on the role and the department, you may find that this evidence is referred to as a Statement of Claims.
Your resume serves one purpose and one purpose only – to get you ahead of the pack in front of a recruiter and land an interview. Resumes tend to follow a conventional pattern – the candidate’s details, a short list of personal strengths, a list of qualifications, career aspirations, a rundown of the work history with key responsibilities, some referees, and that is it; job done. But most likely, job not won. Why? One reason could be that you did not adhere to the STAR format.
