Selection Criteria

Effectively addressing selection criteria communicates to a prospective employer your suitability for a role.

Addressing selection criteria is often the most difficult part of writing a job application. You must provide detailed examples which demonstrate that you have the skills, knowledge and experience necessary to be effective in the role you are applying for. If selection criteria are part of a job application, they will be the primary focus in the initial selection process, so it is important to address them carefully.

View the 'Interview Techniques and Selection Criteria' presentation for practical advice about how to prepare for interviews and how to write a selection criteria statement (presented May 2014). Please note - the slides in this presentation are difficult to view, and a readable version is available through UniHub.

Once you have reviewed the relevant resources and addressed the selection criteria, you can submit it through your career development dashboard on UniHub for an online review, or call in to Careers, Employment & Leadership for a 10 minute, face to face review with our Careers Officer.
