Job applications are a stressful time. Just finding the right job to apply for is a demanding and time-consuming process. But once you’ve found the right position, because of the competitive nature of job applications, the tendency can be to rush forward, dashing off your resume and cover letter fast and paying scant attention to perhaps the most important aspect of the application – the key selection criteria document. A recent article in The Muse highlighted what can happen when you rush.
This is the moment you should pause and contact us.
So what exactly are the key selection criteria?
The KSC is a document that will allow the prospective employer to make a fair and accurate assessment of the capabilities of the applicant to understand and fulfil the pivotal duties of the position on offer. Your response to the criteria, or ‘competencies’, will be crucial to whether the employer grants an interview or not.
Our team of professional writers are on standby to help you stand out from the crowd, clearly and concisely address the requirements of the KSC document and secure that interview.
Our writers have been hand-picked from the highest levels of the HR industry and government recruitment specialists. We are committed to giving you the very best chance of sitting in front of your prospective employer.
