    In the competitive landscape of Government and University job applications, understanding Selection Criteria is essential for securing coveted roles, especially within the Australian Public Sector.

    But what exactly are Selection Criteria?

    Selection Criteria goes beyond the surface level of resumes and cover letters, delving into the core competencies and responsibilities crucial for success in the role. When applying for a job, candidates must:

    • Effectively address Selection Criteria by providing detailed responses that showcase their capabilities and qualifications.
    • These responses not only demonstrate suitability for the role but also serve as a powerful tool for standing out in a crowded applicant pool.

    Why Is A Selection Criteria Response So Important?

    Writing selection criteria isn’t just about filling in the blanks—it’s about:

    • Strategically gathering information, selecting the most compelling examples.
    • Crafting structured responses that effectively address each component of the question.


    Sydney Resume, we take this process to the next level.

    No matter your industry, our approach remains consistent and results-driven. As the landscape evolves, we’ve adapted to meet new requirements, including the demand for concise one-page statements, 1000-word pitches, or addressing organisational values.

    But here’s the secret: it’s not about length—it’s about impact.

    We focus on developing responses that showcase your capabilities, steering clear of unnecessary fluff, and highlighting your unique approach and actions.

    Selection Criteria and the STAR Method

    At Sydney Resume, our HR Managers and Recruiters are experts and thoroughly trained in selection criteria writing. We address all selection criteria using the best practice “STAR” response method, to ensure we are complying with best practice.

    The STAR method stands for:

    • Situation,
    • Task,
    • Action
    • Result

    We meticulously ensure that we use this methodology when addressing each selection criterion. If there is a requirement to use the SAO (Situation, Action, Outcome) method, all our writers are extensively trained in this style of response as well.

    The advantage of having a HR Professional write your selection criteria is enormously beneficial, as they are usually the ones who would be recruiting for these types of submissions and therefore, know exactly what needs to be included and how the response needs to be tailored.
