Key Selection Criteria: Getting You Onto The Shortlist

The goal of your job search is shortlisting for an interview. At Select Resumes, we will help you decode job advertisements and key selection criteria. We will listen to you, and translate and tailor your skills, achievements and experience into a format that employers want to read.

Government employers, whether federal, state or local, use selection criteria at all levels. Many more other employers for example in the corporate, health, education, not-for-profit and other sectors also require applicants to address key selection criteria.

Still other employers will expect you to address the criteria in the job description in a brief or detailed cover letter.

At Select Resumes, we have vast collective experience in successfully writing selection criteria that gets results – that is, shortlisting for an interview.

Key Selection Criteria: Understanding Their Purpose

Public sector and other roles require responses to key selection criteria.

What are key selection criteria? Your responses to key selection criteria are your statement about your ability to perform the role. Many roles will ask you to respond to 5 to 8 criteria covering the key skills, education and experience you need to succeed in the role.

Your responses to the key selection criteria demonstrate more than that, however. When written well, they demonstrate your written communication skills.

Managers and panels have limited time and will discard applications that do not address the key selection criteria directly, relevantly, succinctly and impressively.

Your responses to the selection criteria must be of the highest standard if you wish your application to be seriously considered.
