It is important to address all requirements stipulated in the job advertisement and Information Package to be considered for an interview.
NSW Government agencies often require you to provide some additional information, including writing responses to particular questions to demonstrate your ability to do the job. These questions are often called "Selection Criteria". Where Selection Criteria are established for a position (which you can see either in the advertisement or in the detailed job information in the Information Package), your application will need to include a document you have specifically prepared to address the Selection Criteria.
So, in summary you will typically need to provide:
- A covering letter;
- A resume;
- Any additional information requested, including responses to Selection Criteria where asked.
Throughout your application, you need to clearly explain how your skills and experiences show you are the best person for the job. Please be aware that any statement on an application that is found to be deliberately misleading could make you, if employed, liable for dismissal.
