How to use these samples



While it might be tempting to copy and paste whole examples into your job application, it isn't recommended. What happens if someone else, who is applying for the same job, does exactly the same thing?  Technically selection panels aren't allowed to take you out of the process because you have the same application as someone else (unless it is stated in the selection documentation that your responses have to be original - and I have never come across that before). However, it may tarnish your reputation and leave the selection panel wondering. 

What you can do is use the ideas that you find. Copy and paste some of the language and then change the words around. Or use a thesaurus to change some of the key words. Use the same structure but modify the language to suit your skills and experiece. And let the samples give you some great ideas of your own skills and experiences that you can write about.

Hopefully just by looking at this document you will learn something about how to write your own government job application, both in content and format.
