Key Selection Criteria

The majority of Government employers require applicants to address selection criteria in the job application.

The Smarter Resume Team can assist with Selection Criteria responses utilising the STAR method (Situation/Tasks/Actions/Results),

job interview ready

The STAR model is one way of presenting information against selection criteria. For each criterion think about the following and use these points to form sentences:

  • Situation

    Set the context by describing the circumstance where you used the skills or qualities and gained the experience.

  • Task

    What was your role?

  • Actions

    What did you do and how did you do it?

  • Results

    What did you achieve? What was the end result and how does it relate to the job you are applying for?
