Winning Selection Criteria Example – Administration Officer

This a a real life example of an applicant who was selected above over 100 other applicants for interview for an administration role at a local high school based on her selection criteria. Names and identifying details have been changed for privacy reasons.

Jody’s Actual Selection Criteria: 

******Note that the applicant was required to address the selection criteria in a cover letter of no more than three pages. Due  formatting, this criteria appears longer than actual size.

To whom it may concern,

It is with great interest that I write to present my application for your position as a Finance Officer as advertised. I understand that you are looking for a passionate individual with experience in Accounts Receivable and Payroll.  With 9+ years’ experience in Accounts Receivable and current experience completing weekly Payroll for 70+ staff, I am confident that I have the skills required to be a success in your team. I offer the following:

Demonstrated experience in an Accounts Receivable role or similar

I offer a combination of experience and qualifications, which will allow me to perform the responsibilities of the position such including extensive experience in handling Accounts Receivable. From 2003 until 2012, I was employed as an Accounts Receivable/Accounts Payable Clerk for One Man and Action Results. I generated invoices for our customers which were either mailed or emailed depending on their individual preference. At times, I also needed to follow up with customers who did not pay in line with our credit and payment terms. As part of my role, I was also responsible for recording all sales the business had made, money received for goods and services and the amount still owed at the end of each month. I processed all payments (including cash, cheque and credit card) and tracked our bank statements. I also completed banking and reconciling duties and end of month procedures in line with company protocol.

Demonstrated experience with payroll

I am currently employed as the Payroll Officer for Trade Industries where I perform weekly payroll duties for 70+ staff members. This involves ensuring that wages are designated to the correct costing and that all allowances are paid in line with company procedures. I also run reports for management as required, create and maintain employee files and provide support to our accountant with regards to super contributions and PAYG deductions.

Ability to acquire knowledge of Awards and Collective Agreements in an educational environment

I am confident in my ability to quickly obtain a working knowledge of the awards and collective agreements relevant to the position. At Trade Industries, our staff is eligible for several different awards based on their positions and whether they are classified as ‘inside’ or ‘outside’ staff. We also operate under a number of different legal agreements in regards to allowances, job classifications, overtime etc.  We operate under several different agreements based on individual staff members in regards to holiday pay and sick leave entitlements. The most difficult part of my current position is that every individual is on a different pay rate and has different entitlements depending on what was negotiated with management at the start of their contract. Since I have successfully managed to research and record this information for every staff member, I am certain that I will quickly and accurately be able to form an understanding of your awards and collective agreements and how they relate to an educational environment.

Capacity to work with a broad range of individuals

My ability to work with a broad range of individuals is demonstrated through my previous employment as a Customer Service Attendant for the CMR Bank where I consistently exceeded all set targets in relation to my ability to build rapport with clients and refer clients to specialised services. Customer service has also been a key competent of role at Action Results where I have responded to customer enquiries regarding our services, resolved disputes and was frequently complimented by management and customers for my ability to exceed customer service expectations. I was awarded ‘Team Member of the Month’ on numerous occasions throughout my employment.

I’m able to work cooperatively in a team environment as demonstrated through my employment at Action where I worked as part of a team of five permanent staff. In this position, I was responsible for prioritising and delegating the workload to each staff member and ensuring that these jobs had been completed by the close of business. We also held regular team meetings where I actively contributed my ideas. I developed relationships with all internal and external stakeholders through simple measures such as displaying common courtesy, remembering birthdays and complimenting others on a job well done. I have also always displayed personal attributes of trust, fairness, empathy and understanding which I believe are key to building functional interpersonal relationships with others.

Ability to work under pressure, to meet timeframes and to plan and organise workload

I remain calm when under pressure despite tight deadlines and numerous issues with our internet access at Trade Industries. Since Trade Industries is made up of a large casual workforce, I rely on timesheets to know each worker’s hours for the week. However, as the staff members are frequently working in ‘the outback’, these timesheets are late coming through causing a considerable backlog in work. I have implemented a number of procedures to combat this issue such as a spreadsheet marking off the timesheets as they come through. I can forward this spreadsheet to each supervisor to follow up on who still needs to submit timesheets in order to get them through in time for payroll. As my hours of work as flexible, I also rearrange my schedule so that I can work longer  on the busy days (Tuesday, Wednesday) and fewer hours on the quiet days (Thursday, Friday).

Well-developed computer skills in the area of computerised accounting systems, spread sheets and other associated computer software

With regards to computer skills, I am proficient in the MS Office Suite, including Word, Excel, Publisher, PowerPoint and Outlook. I also have experience with accounting software such as QuickBooks and MYOB.  I am familiar with a number of internal computer systems such as Ostendo. I can operate all office equipment including scanners, printers and faxes and can troubleshoot basic issues (paper jams, internet access) with limited supervision. I’ve used Word to write reports, draft memos, type procedures and draft correspondence. Excel is used in my current employment to track timesheets and was used for customer data entry in my previous role at Action. I’ve used Publisher to create marketing material for Action and Power Point to formulate presentations for management. I used MYOB to perform Accounts Receivable/Payable operations for Trade Industries and Quick Books for the same tasks during my employment at Action. Currently I use Ostendo to perform payroll operations for Trade Industries.  I also undertook training in MYOB and MS Excel when I identified that I would like to strengthen these skills.

Commitment to continuous improvement strategies

My commitment to continuous improvement is demonstrated through the further professional development I have undertaken to broaden my existing administration skills such as training in MS Excel and MYOB and a Certificate IV in Office Administration through TAFE. I was also responsible for the innovation and implementation of all office procedures at Action Results. This was a business that was started from scratch with no existing procedures in place. I utilized what I had learned from One Man (same industry), made improvements and implemented these procedures at Action. This resulted in streamlined and quality office procedures that were user friendly with minimum paperwork requirements.

During the Global Financial Crisis, I implemented a direct marketing campaign at Action in order to attract more customers. I identified a number of targets according to their occupation, drafted a leaflet advertising our specials and compiled a specific mailing list to our targeted audience which resulted in new business for our organisation and improved our financial performance.

Demonstrated experience working within schools or the educational sector.

I offer the experience of having volunteered at KTown State School in numerous capacities relevant to your role. For example, I spent (5) years teaching Religious Education to students in grades 1-3 on a part time volunteer basis and spent another (3) years on the Parents and Citizens Committee, including the position of Treasurer for the organisation. This position involved fundraising, event planning and working with teachers and administration staff to make KTown State School the best place for educating young students.  I also volunteered with the Japanese Home Stay Student Program for (2) years which included supervising students on excursions and teaching primary aged Japanese students about Australian Culture.

I possess the skills and knowledge required to succeed with both my own and educational objectives. I welcome the chance to discuss my application with you in person, and I appreciate your consideration and look forward to hearing from you in the near future.

Selection Criteria STAR Method Examples

Selection Criteria STAR Method Examples

Ever wondered what the STAR method everyone talks about it when it comes to writing Selection Criteria? Here are some examples and a brief overview of the method and how to make it work when writing your own criteria.

First up STAR in selection criteria stands for:

Situation – describe the situation

Task – describe the task

Action – describe the action taken

Result – describe what the result was

It’s an effective way to address selection criteria because it gives a specific example of how you meet the criteria.

 

Let’s use customer service as our first example:

Demonstrated Customer Service Skills:

Situation – unhappy customer

Task – to make the customer happy

Action – offer a refund and apologise

Result – happy customer that became a repeat buyer.

In criteria form that looks like this:

During my employment with Harry’s Snack Station I resolved an incident where a customer complained about a fly in her soup. Harry’s Snack Station has a policy that the customer is always right and that every step necessary should be taken to swiftly resolve the problem to the customers satisfaction. Using this policy as a guideline I apologised for the incident, offered the customer a full refund and replaced the soup. I then asked the customer if the situation had been resolved successfully and if she needed me to do anything further to regain her trust. The customer stated she was extremely happy with my response and went on to become a repeat customer.

 

Ok, for our second example let’s use organisational skills.

Criteria: Demonstrated Organisational Skills

Situation – administration work due for tight deadline with one team member off sick.

Task – to get the work completed on-time.

Action – delegate responsibilities, track progress, work overtime

Result – report in on time.

In criteria form it looks like this:

During my employment with Sandy Administration Services I was responsible for managing a small team of (3) administration members. The end of financial year is our busiest time as we needed to make sure all financial reports were ready for the accountant by the 1st of July. Twenty-four hours before the financial reports were due one of the team members called in sick which meant that the rest of the team had to pull together to handle her regular workload, their own workload and the additional reporting requirements.

To ensure the reports the accountant were provided on time I halved the absent team members regular work load and designated it to the remaining staff while I worked on the financial reports. I identified which remaining reports were needed, wrote a list and estimated the amount of time required for each task. I checked this list off as each report was prepared. I also worked back late to ensure that the report was submitted before I left the office. The end result was that the accountant received the reports on time, the absent team members work was completed, the team’s regular workload was completed and my own personal workload was completed with 100% accuracy in time for the deadline.

These are basic examples. For 80+ examples of proven successful selection criteria including DIY ‘Fill in the Blank’ templates to write your own criteria click here:

Selection Criteria Examples for Aged Care

Selection Criteria Examples for Aged Care

Looking for a sample selection criteria of Aged Care? Here are some examples for you to get an idea of what it should look like. This selection criteria is written in statement form which is becoming common depending on what state you live in.  However, you can still use individual headings if you feel the need to.

Aged Care Selection Criteria

I have the proven ability to comprehensively assess, plan, implement and evaluate nursing care at an advanced level. In my current role with Smith Street Aged Care Facility, I plan and coordinate patient care within an inter-professional team. This includes monitoring resources and capabilities to achieve patient goals and government targets. For example, I triage patients based on their request forms and liaise with nursing and medical staff to make decisions surrounding the care of the patient and to coordinate health plans.

I offer leadership in HR practice, with particular reference to workplace health and safety, ethical practice and antidiscrimination. I’ve orientated new staff, compiled reports on performance management, responded to escalated complaints and issues, dealt with rostering requirements and provided support and mentoring to team members. Workplace Health and Safety is our number one concern at all times. I also pay careful attention to both EEO and Discrimination legislation. I work with a team from different cultural backgrounds and pursue an inclusive environment that makes all staff members feel welcome. I always get to know the individual instead of the stereotype and I never discriminate based on gender, cultural, religion or sexual preferences. I take responsibility for my own actions and I act honestly in all my dealings with transparency and firmness. I always work in the Code of Conduct to ensure I adhere to ethical practice and I strictly adhere to privacy and confidentiality legislation.

I have the ability to provide aged care leadership in the clinical and professional setting including the demonstration of an advanced level of interpersonal, written and oral communication skills. I also use my communication skills to de-escalate hostile situations and abuse from patients.  Often our patients demonstrate behavioural extremes. I make an assessment of my own safety before deciding on an appropriate course of action. In some instances, I state that it is not the ‘right time’ to have this conversation and walk away until the patient has calmed down.  If I determine it is safe to engage with the patient I request that the patient speaks in a non-aggressive manner to continue the conversation in a respectful but firm tone of voice. I set firm boundaries while using active listening skills to understand the patients’ needs and wants.

I can use information and reporting systems appropriate to the position. I’m also familiar with the MS Office Suite of Applications and can use Excel, Word, Outlook and PowerPoint to fulfil my responsibilities. I can quickly obtain a working knowledge of any new systems or documentation requirements and I am willing to undertake any further training required to fulfil the responsibilities of the role.

I’m committed to a high standard encompassing quality improvement and processes. I frequently step up to levels of higher responsibility and I actively support governance, quality and compliance within the organisation. After every incident or emergency, I ask myself “what can I do better/differently next time?”. If I come up with a new idea or think of a way we can improve our existing procedures, I bring it up in team meetings or direct with my supervisor. I pay strict attention to my performance reviews and actively request feedback on all my work so I am constantly learning. I ensure I meet all paperwork requirements required by law so we always pass audit and I regularly network with other health professionals to discuss quality improvement processes and ways to perform better.

How To Avoid Age Discrimination On Your Resume

Having an issue with Age Discrimination on your resume? I’ve compiled a video focusing on quick tips to avoid it that you can take now.

Did you know that age discrimination has become such an issue that the Australian Government has introduced wage subsidies for employers that hire mature workers over 50 who are receiving a government benefit? Check your  eligibility here. This means that an employer can receive up to $10,000 in wage subsidies for hiring you.  A definite selling point for employers on tight budgets.

Watch the video below for my tips to avoid age discrimination on your resume – but if you are more of a reader (like me) – here’s a quick breakdown.

  1. Avoid anything that mentions the 80’s or earlier. That means strip the dates off your qualifications and avoid listing your jobs back that far. Ideally I don’t want to see anything from the 90’s either but so many of my clients want it included that sometimes I have to relent.
  2. Ditto for anything that shows your age – some really good examples are things like Typewriting or Shorthand courses. These are a dead give-away. The same as anything that mentions the word Secretary School. They don’t call it that anymore so don’t mention it.
  3. Please highlight your achievements and don’t be modest! This sounds odd (and also sad) but modesty is not something the younger generation are good at. So many of my mature clients want to tone down their resume because they are afraid of sounding conceited. Don’t be – you are competing with a younger generation that is VERY comfortable shouting how awesome they are from the rooftop. You have to be in it to win it and that means you need to compete to the very best of your ability. Show them how great you are!

That’s the main tips – I talk more about hiding your age on your resume to avoid  discrimination in the video so give it a watch and get in touch if you have any questions.

While you are at it, make sure you download my free ‘Resume Questionnaire’  at the end of the page. It will help you pinpoint those achievements you have been hiding.

Career Change? Stop Using SEEK.

Are you trying to change careers? The first thing you need to do is to stop relying on SEEK to find your next job. Here’s why:

When you use SEEK to find a new job (the internet job-search) you are competing with hundreds of other applicants. That’s fine if you are trying to get a job that you  have oodles of experience in – but if you are swapping careers that’s going to make you a tough sell against the other applicants.

My number one suggestion is that if you are trying to change jobs – you need to start networking or cold-calling. Of course you will still apply for advertised positions BUT don’t rely on it as the be all and end all of your job search. I have stacks more tips for you in the video above not relying on SEEK is my number one.

Let’s say you are a Bricklayer looking for a Security Guard role. You don’t have any security experience – but you do have your security qualification – licence. If you apply on SEEK at least half the applicants are going to have practical experience so you have a very very slim chance of reaching interview stage. Instead, you need to have contacted the employer before they go to the advertising stage.

So I would recommend in this situation that you post your resume with a cover letter to security companies in the area – stating that you are looking to get involved in the field and asking that they contact you should a position come up. This way you won’t be competing with other applicants who are probably more qualified than you.

I hope this helps you with your career change or transition. In the meantime, let me know if you would like help with your resume. You can view a sample here.

Quick Tips To Improve Your Resume

Want some quick tips to improve your resume today? Grab a copy of your current resume and lets get to work. I’ve attached a sample resume at the end of this video so you can see what I mean.

  1. Add a ‘Professional Profile’ section at the top of your resume. This is a quick summary of your experience and what you can bring to the table. You want the employer to be able to see exactly who you are and what you offer in one concise paragraph.
  2. Add a ‘Career Summary’ section which details the basics of your employment history – just dates, employer name and job title at this stage. We want this on the first page so the employer doesn’t have to wade through pages of content to get a feel for your experience.
  3. If you add interests – make sure they are interesting. I’ve written a whole post about this before but it’s super important that you don’t just write – gardening. Turn that into something interesting so it becomes ‘member of the floral society for 3 years and winner of Grand Champion Rose at the Toowoomba Show for (5) years’. Everyone write Gardening – do something different!
  4. Scrap your McDonalds job from when you were 15 (unless you are still a teenager). Remember that the trend is for a resume to get shorter – not longer. Don’t waste the space with irrelevant jobs that you haven’t done for 20 odd years. Stick to the past 4-5 unless they are super relevant to the job you are going for.
  5. Avoid Personal Details – your name and contact details are fine. Skip your relationship status and date of birth. Both open you up for discrimination based on the employers personal prejudices.  Don’t give them any ammunition to throw your resume in the bin.

For more tips, be sure to check out the video above and download a copy of a sample resume so you can see what it should look like below.

 

How Far Back Should Your Employment History Go?

How Far Back Should You Go With Your Resume?

It’s a question I get asked all the time. Nearly everybody that comes through my Resume Writing Service asks the same thing – How many of my jobs should I list on my resume?

You can watch the video above that explains it all or read on and I’ll give you a brief run-down.

Usually 4-5 of your most recent positions BUT there are exceptions to this rule.

Rule 1 – If listing your last 5 jobs takes you back to the 70’s or 80’s – don’t do it. I’m iffy about the 90’s these days as well but sometimes it can’t be avoided.

Rule 2 – If you held a whole bunch of short-term contracts – you might want to take your job history far enough back to show a job you were stable in (provided it wasn’t in the 80’s or 70’s.

Rule 3 – If you previously worked in an industry but for the past 4-5 jobs have been doing something different then absolutely go back far enough to show your experience in the industry. (but see rule 1 first).

Let’s look at some scenarios to clarify the rules:

Example 1: Jane used to work as a Retail Assistant from 1975-1980. Since then she had been working in administration. Jane wants to return to Retail. Should Jane list her retail experience on her resume as it is relevant to the job?

No, Jane should not list her retail job from the 70’s on her resume. Because (a) it shows her age and sadly we have a HUGE problem with age discrimination and (b) being a Retail Assistant in the 70’s is NOTHING like being a Retail Assistant in 2017. No EFT, No Credit Card processing, No Automatic Cash Register etc.

Instead Jane should highlight the customer service experience she gained through her administration roles in her professional profile, achievements and role descriptions to showcase her transferable skills.

Example 2: Joe used to work as a Workplace Health and Safety Officer from 1999-2004. But since then has had (6) jobs as a Sales Rep for the next (6)  but now wants to go back to Workplace Health & Safety. Should Joe list his previous experience on the resume?

Yes, the easiest way for Joe to do this is to add in a career summary that shows his dates, company name and job title for his work history and nothing else AND then write a title ‘Workplace Health & Safety Experience’ on his resume where he elaborates on the Workplace Health & Safety Officer job in great detail. This shows he has a work history and hasn’t been lying on the beach for the last few years while also minimizing the sales experience and focusing on the Workplace Health & Safety role.

 

Interests Have To Be Interesting To List Them On Your Resume

Job Seeker Tip of the Week

If you want to list interests on your resume – make sure they are interesting or don’t waste the space.

Example:

Gardening Becomes: Member of the Toowoomba Rose Society for 15+ years, Winner of Best Champion Rose at the Toowoomba Show for (5) years in a row and volunteer with the Brisbane Botanical Gardens.
Or
Fishing Becomes: President of the Toowong Barra Club and volunteer with the ‘Restock Miller Dam’ Committee.
Or
Reading Becomes: Runner Up in the MS Read-A-Thon for reading 60 books in (1) week and raised $20,000 to build libraries in third world countries.

unnamed (7)

Remember EVERYONE is writing Reading, Fishing and Gardening on their resume – if you want to use it at least make it something different and if you don’t have any anything related to your interest – is it really an interest anyway?

Knowledge and Experience (IT Project Manager Application)

As an IT Recruiter with qualifications in Information Systems and Information Technology and proven experience leading small teams in an IT environment, I am certain that I have the knowledge and experience that you require for this position. I am a Microsoft Certified Professional and Apple Certified Macintosh Technician demonstrating my technical knowledge. I’ve also completed International Leadership Training as part of my professional development demonstrating my ability to lead small teams to achieve project management outcomes. Previous positions as an Office Support Technician and Service Technician have provided me with a clear understanding of project management methodologies and the understanding required to break down work structures to achieve results in an IT environment.

In my role as Service Technician, I managed a number of IT projects which included the deployment of specific computer programs into a school based environment. I was involved from design to implementation, which included setting the group policy for the project, keeping the team on track by setting and monitoring milestones and working to a strict timeframe.  Specifically, I implemented the roll out and SOE deployment in a number of Toowoomba Private Schools and purchased hundreds of laptop computers from Apple, coordinated the system requirements and SOE images and deployed the images and systems onsite. All of these projects were delivered on time and according to budget with deadlines occurring from a few days to one month.

I have also gained an understanding and knowledge of project management methodologies and principles during my time working in IT recruitment. In order to recruit suitable candidates for my client’s IT projects, I was required to understand various project management methodologies and systems such as PRINCE2, Agile, ITIL and CCPM etc.

This experience provided the understanding you require in systems infrastructure and database design and I have an excellent understanding of the key technical terms and functions of integration and technology. During my study of BIT and MIS, I have gained extensive knowledge in various fields of IT including systems, infrastructure, networking, security, telecommunications, database and software application etc. During my time as the technical sales consultant and service technician, I gained hands on experience in designing, building, implementing and troubleshooting Windows and Macintosh computer systems at both desktop and server level.

In my current role, I have successfully placed candidates into almost all type of IT positions including project/program managers, change managers, architects, business analysis, developers, testers, database administrations, technical writers and so on. During this process, I have gained a great deal of understanding and knowledge of all related IT technologies and platforms in enterprise application, IT operation, business intelligence, data warehousing and system integration etc.

With specific regard to MS Project, I am able to use this software to create projects, manage project resources and plan a project budget. I am familiar with its functions and capabilities in assisting project managers with project scheduling, resource allocating and tracking as well as budgeting. I believe I will be able to pick up the rest of the MS Project system easily as I am a demonstrated quick learner when it comes to IT. During my time at Nat Technology, I started off with no prior experience in the McIntosh system. It took me one month to become a fully certified McIntosh Service Technician; I became the quickest certified technical in Nat Technology history. In my current role, with no previous experience in recruitment, it took me three months to become a fully functional recruitment consultant as well as the company’s best performer since. As an IT Leader with 9+ years of practical experience in an IT environment, I am certain that I have the technical knowledge and abilities that are required to succeed in the role of IT Project Manager.

Demonstrated extensive experience and advanced clinical competence in Emergency and Medical Nursing (Nurse Application)

I have over 12 years’ practical experience in providing clinical care to patients in rural and city  hospital environments throughout India, the United States of America and Australia. This includes extensive practical experience in Emergency and Medical Nursing.  I completed a Bachelor of Science (Nursing) qualification through the University of Perth in 2001.

I am currently employed by Thargomindah Hospital in the position of Registered Nurse/Coordinator. I provide emergency treatment to patients suffering from trauma, acute chest pain and respiratory failure.  I manage multiple critically ill patients by assessing and prioritising their care, following instructions from the physician, documenting assessments, care plans and outcomes, and providing quality information and support to patients and family members regarding the condition, prognosis and treatment of the patient.

Prior to this, I was employed by Cunnamulla District Hospital as a Registered Nurse which included attending to patients with chest pain, wounds and trauma injuries. Part of my role required me to provide medical care while transferring patients via the Royal Flying Doctor Service and ambulance. I also have experience in the Critical Care, Intensive Care and Medical and Surgery Units.

My experience includes, but is not limited to:

  • Providing care for patients on Ventilator
  • Acute patient care for over 10 patients
  • Electrocardiogram monitoring
  • Defibrillation and medication administration
  • Administering blood and TPN
  • Providing care to patients for respiratory and cardiac failure
  • Caring for post-operative patients
  • Supervising student nurses
  • Completing injections, transfusions and wound dressings
  • Ability to use ECG Machine, Infusion Pumps, Resuscitation Trolley, Pulse Oximeter, Cardiac Monitor, Nebulisers, Suction Apparatus, Glucometer plus other medical equipment.

Emergency and medical nursing is a day-to-day requirement of my current role. I monitor patients’ conditions and report these to the treating doctor. I also assist the doctor to assess the risk of transporting patients to the nearest hospital facility versus treating patients onsite, in cases such as pregnancies and births.

Emergency care also formed part of my duties with my employment as a Nurse with Cunnamulla Health. I needed to assess each patient’s medical condition to determine the level of risk involved, according to timeframes and priority treatment, in order to provide a quality service to patients. I also provided both high and low level care to aged care patients.
