What does “Addressing Key Selection Criteria” Mean?
Key Selection Criteria are the key qualifications (if any), abilities, training, personal attributes, skills, and experience that you must have in order to do a particular job effectively. The more key selection criteria you can demonstrate that you meet, the more likely it will be that you will be short-listed for an interview.
Addressing the Key Selection Criteria does not mean viewing the Position Description and signing it, as read.
To submit a fully completed application for employment with Mentis Assist, you MUST provide 3 separate documents:
- A covering letter introducing yourself and why the position is of interest to you
- A detailed resume
- A separate document addressing the Key Selection Criteria. The Key Selection Criteria can found in the Position Description for the role.
Note: If your application is not in this format your application will NOT be considered.
Addressing the Key Selection Criteria
Refer to the Position Description and create a list of the Key Selection Criteria in bold.
Think about how you meet each criteria. Write notes with specific examples of how you meet the criteria and use these notes to help you write your final response.
Use clear language with specific examples of your past work, volunteer, extra-curricular activities, student placement, or other experience to demonstrate how you meet each Key Selection Criteria
As a guide, use the “STAR” method to provide examples of how you meet the criteria. Explain the ‘Situation’ - where the relevant example came from, followed by the ‘Task’ which is your role in the example provided. Outline what ‘Action’ you took, and state the end ‘Result’.
For example - to address the key selection criteria: "experience in preparing financial reports"
As a financial officer at ZYZ Corporation, I prepared monthly budget analysis reports for the senior leadership team. The reports were delivered within required timeframes each month. I was able to advise the leadership team of potential deficits and recommend remedial actions and as a result, budget targets were met.
Where selection criteria are about ‘experience’, be specific about time frames and situations. For example: “five years’ experience working with young people with an intellectual disability in a community residential unit”.
