Addressing the Selection Criteria
When applying for a government role, ensuring you adequately address the selection criteria is critical.
Utilise the industry standard STAR model when formulating your responses. That is, when structuring your response, consider the Situation (what role were you in?), Task (what was the problem or issue you were faced with?), Action (what did you do?) and Result (what was the outcome?).
Developing Your Resume for a WA Government Role
When applying for a government role, your resume and selection criteria are used in combination to assess your suitability for the role. Your resume should confirm the dates of your employment and your roles, and provide a summary of your experience.
Your selection criteria response is your opportunity to provide detailed information about your previous experience and achievements, and how this relates to the position you are applying for. It is vital your resume and selection criteria are consistent.
Generally, resumes in the government sector are more traditional in design, panels tend to prefer black and white colour schemes with minimal graphics and fancy fonts.
