When You Don’t Have An Example To Use In Addressing Selection Criteria


You’ve come across a position that you’re quite interested in, and they ask you to address a set of key selection criteria. That’s all good and well. But there’s just one problem. You don’t have enough relevant working examples to demonstrate your competence in meeting some or all of the criteria.

So, faced with this dilemma, what can you do?

My suggestion is to use an imaginative situation, a “what-if” scenario to show what you would do should that situation arise.

Or, you could highlight your skills and knowledge, and instead of using an example, talk about your familiarity with the criterion.
