Firstly, my suggestion is to find out if the employer/recruiter has asked for a certain number of words per response or how many pages your application should be. Will help you determine the length and size of your answers.

However, as a rule of thumb, my suggestion is to stay around 300-350 words per criteria. Or best to stay less than half a page long, with multiple paragraphs rather than a couple of long paragraphs that may be a little difficult to read.

How to deal with having a lack of industry experience, by Matthew Coppola


We’ve all heard it before. The typical response from an employer/recruiter saying that you lack industry experience. So, face with this issue, how do you deal with it?

Employers generally say this because they genuinely need someone who has experience in their industry, whether it be in the same role or a completely different position. Especially needed when a set of key selection criteria need to be addressed.

Every industry is different. Having an understanding of the industry, what the market is like, any regulations, policies or other intricacies of the industry can be very important to an employer. To them, you understand their business and their industry. They can relate better to you and discuss industry matters with you knowing full well that you have some level of familiarity with the sector that their business.

So, the question is, how do I respond to that answer?

You may decide to talk about your experience in another industry that is similar, and how it relates to their industry. But, that isn’t always easy.

The next step may be to obtain some work experience or volunteer your time in the industry that you need to gain exposure to. This may help and be beneficial to put on your resume.

Another option is to do a course/workshop/attend a conference relevant to that industry.

How many examples should I include in my selection criteria?


Generally speaking, one to two examples is great to include in a selection criteria response. Two the better, but it’s always best to give at least one example. If you can fit in three examples then great, but it may make the response quite lengthy.

The best thing to do it is to be mindful of the person who may be reading your application.

How long should a selection criteria response by? By Matthew Coppola


For many, the task of writing out a response to a key selection criterion can be very daunting. Many feel that by writing many words and a lengthy response that they will have a higher chance of being shortlisted for the position.

But is that true? Maybe.

Either way, actually taking the initiative to adequately and fully address each key selection criterion may make an impression upon the employer. Essentially it says to them that you not only want the job, but you know you can perform it and are willing to sacrifice time (without any guarantee of securing an interview or hearing back) to write out an application to them.

Generally speaking, a response to key selection criteria should be maximum half-a-page long. This is being mindful of the reader’s time. And if there are six or more criteria that you have to address, that is a lot of reading on the employers/recruiters part.

How detailed and personalised should my response be to each key selection criteria? By Matthew Coppola


Generally speaking, every response to key selection criteria should include at least one example of how you demonstrate that you fulfil the requirements of the position and essentially the criteria statement itself.

The first and most important point that I would like to stress is that your response should really be written with the reader in mind, just like anything else put in writing. The reader will want to know about your experience and know exactly how you address the statement. Remember, the reader may be the Human Resources Manager, Recruitment Consultant or Manager/Supervisor who will be the direct report for the position.

A response to key selection criteria should be detailed and personalised by incorporating not only a relevant example but also other specific details from your experience in a clear and concise manner. It should be personalised by being less vague and general, to be more relevant and specific to you as a potential employer and what you have done in the past that meets with what they require.

How long should each key selection criteria response be? By Matthew Coppola


 

Depends.

Generally speaking, it is good for a response to be half-a-page long, although it really depends on the criteria question/statement and what is being asked.

Some employers will stipulate a word limit for each response. This may range anywhere from 300 words to 1000 words, so it makes sense to adjust the length according to the requirements of the employer and what they are asking for.

The general rule of thumb when writing out a response to key criteria is to decide what kind of examples and content will be included in the response and how much needs to be written so that the question/criteria is accurately addressed in the best possible manner.

Using the STAR method in addressing the Key Selection Criteria, by Matthew Coppola


More and more jobs these days request applicants to submit not only their current CV and a covering letter, but also another letter to address the key selection criteria (KSC). The KSC is made up of a series of questions or statements that relate to the requirements of the position and then you need to address each criteria with at least 1-2 paragraphs of how your skills, experience, abilities and knowledge meet their requirement/s. The number of KSC “criterions” vary from position to position, however generally there will be 6 – 8 criteria that need to be addressed.

Many public service, community and health organisations request a KSC to be addressed, but these days as the number of job seekers looking for work increases, and the competition in the labour market increases, many private businesses and corporations are attaching at KSC to their advertised positions.

If you come across a key selection criteria for a job and you are really stuck as to how to answer each criterion, then I welcome you to utilise a professional service. Client Centric Executive Employment Solutions offer a service where they address the key selection criteria for you.

The STAR (Situation, Task, Action, Result) format is a technique you can use to assist in addressing each criteria.

The first part of your answer should be a selling statement like “I possess excellent communication skills….and I am….

Then you back that up with an example by using the STAR method:

Situation – Present a recent example/challenge/issue/achievement you were in and briefly explain the context

Task – What did you need to do or trying to accomplish?

Action – What exactly did you end up doing, if it was in steps, list these

Result – What was the outcome? If positive, explain benefits/value, if negative, explain what your resolution was.

Why it’s important to thoroughly read the position description, by Matthew Coppola


Most jobs that are advertised by companies large enough to hire more than 10 staff will come with a position description or otherwise known by the acronym ‘PD’ in human resources language. The PD will include a range or information for the applicant, including information about the company, their policies and etiquette and details about the job including statement of duties and key responsibilities. The PD may even come with a “Key Selection Criteria” that needs to be addressed as a separate document along with your resume and covering letter in the application.

It is very important that you take the time to read over the position description and thoroughly understand exactly what the job will involve and how it fits in with the overall goals and mission of the organisation/firm. Read over the key duties and responsibilities, think about whether or not you have actually performed the duties or something similar. If you have not performed one or more of the job duties, think about what transferable skills/abilities you have that you could use to justify that you can perform the required task/s.

For PD’s with a key selection criteria, read over each criteria/statement and make sure that you understand what they are asking from you. If you properly understand the criteria/s, you will be able to answer them as effectively as possible. If you really don’t understand/interpret the selection criteria, you may wish to contact the nominated person on the PD or better yet, seek the services of a professional who will answer the key selection criteria for you with high quality responses. Client Centric Executive Employment Solutions offer a profession selection criteria writing service and you can visit their page by clicking here.

The better understanding you have about the job and what is involved, the better you will be equipped and prepared to answer questions in the interview and be able to ascertain yourself as someone who is well equipped to do the job!
