Meeting the Selection Criteria
The job description and/or the position description (PD) will include Selection Criteria, it is imperative that your resume details your specific skills, expertise, and experience that meet
and satisfy each of these nominated position requirements. Virginia partners with you to
identify which of your skills and experience are most relevant for each item listed in the
Selection Criteria; what the company is looking for. The advertisement or PD will detail the specific skills and experience that the business requires to fill its vacant position.
Often the company/business/organisation specify that you must provide a specific example of how and when you demonstrated this skill in the workplace. Sometimes it is hard to think of the specific example, that is just right, to illustrate your skill and the result you achieved. Virginia’s knowledge of what an employer is looking for in these examples has been proven to be precisely what gets you the job you are applying for.
Did you know that some companies/organisations read your selection criteria response or statement or letter of application (cover letter) before they read your resume?
Showing the VALUE you bring
Documenting your achievements from each position you have held is an important part of your resume. It shows the recruiter/hiring manager what value you could bring to the position you are applying for, describing your achievements with statistics, if you have them, makes the best impression, if not, then describing your achievements with action verbs, what you actually did and what was the result for the business, you worked for previously.
ATS-Friendly Format & Content
Applicant Tracking Systems (ATS) pre-filter resumes before they’re reviewed by an actual person, a recruiter, human resources officer or the hiring manager. While these software systems are effective in weeding out under qualified candidates, they only play well with specific file formats and layouts. Resumes with creative graphic elements or unconventional layouts might not be compatible with the software.
