Selection criteria workshop

A major stumbling block for jobseekers can be writing a job application where you have to respond to selection criteria. You may have the qualifications, experience and skills for the role but if you don’t address the selection criteria adequately, you might not get an interview. In this workshop, you will learn how to:

  • understand the types of selection criteria;
  • apply the SAO (Situation, Action, Outcome) method of writing an application;
  • brainstorm your skills and experiences to make them relevant to the selection criteria; and
  • respond to the selection criteria in a simple, concise manner.

This free two-hour workshop could greatly increase your chances to get through to the interview stage of a recruitment process. It is available at the Northbridge TAFE Jobs and Skills Centre – once a month on a Tuesday from 10 am to 12 pm. Please contact the centre directly to check the actual dates this workshop is available.
