PREPARING YOUR APPLICATION
Read the Position Description
Before you apply, read the position description to determine whether the job is right for you and if you have the right skills and experience for the role. Your Cover Letter, Job Application & Resume should be put into a single document, made into a PDF and uploaded with your details.
This is a short, sharp 1 page document where you write a sentence on the key aspects of the job advertisement. This is your chance to highlight how you are more than capable of doing this job because of your qualifications and experience. Remember – Short & Sharp!
This should be a well edited document, with a paragraph addressing each of the candidate requirements, i.e. the desirable & essential criteria. You need to demonstrate using examples from various roles, how you have met and exceeded these requirements. Each paragraph should have a heading of the criteria being answered, this tells us that you have actually addressed the requirement and shows us where each answer starts and ends. Again –thorough, but not too long!
