It doesn't have to be as hard as it seems. Let me show you
My name is Vanessa, and I am a government recruiter. If you're in a
situation like I was when I applied for my first government job, then
you're probably just realising how time consuming and energy draining
writing a government job application can be - especially when it comes
to addressing selection criteria and core capabilities!
I quickly realised that if I wanted to get the job of my dreams I was
going to have to put some serious effort into my application. I
dedicated 6 hours to my selection criteria, and I got my job, which
ironically was in government recruitment. I was
lucky though. When job advertisements attract an average of
40-50 applications, you only have a 2% to 3% chance of winning a job
that you apply for. But, what if I could dramatically improve
I have spent over 10 years as a professional recruiter, I sit on
selection panels across Australia every week for various government
departments, and I know what applicants do right, and what they do
wrong - most of the time without realising it. Most
applicants spend twice as much time as they should on their
applications, and end up with something that's only half the quality
that it could be. In fact, if you've already started writing
your statements against selection criteria you probably already know
how much time and frustration you've wasted just trying to get
started. And if you don' t do it right, you could lose the
job to someone else, the better application writer, even if they aren't
the best one for the job.
I am sick and tired of seeing great applicants with fantastic potential
waste their chances. Even more frustrating is knowing that
it's really not that hard to write a great application!
You don't have to labour for hours on your application, not like I
did. You can write an application that will knock the panel's
socks off, in half the time you thought it would take.
How? I've written down a strategy, and created a plan for
you. In this guide, I've come up with a formula that can lead
you in five easy steps, from a blank page, to winning statements
against the selection criteria, filled with powerful examples of the
skills that you take for granted. The guide comes as a
downloadable version which means you can purchase the guide instantly
online and be using it in a few minutes. As we all know,
applications have deadlines and sometimes when you need help, you need
help straight away!
But you need more than great selection criteria to win a job.
There are cover letters, resumes, interviews and reference
checks. Not to mention finding the job in the first place,
and trying to make sense of the confusing world of government
employment. I've covered it all in this guide, and update it
every year to stay on top of changes. All of our products
come with a 30 day money back guarantee, so if it doesn't help you, you
haven't wasted anything.
All the best with your job application, and I hope that the principles
that you learn will enable you to "get that job."

Success That Our Customers Have Had
I have picked up lots of books about writing resumes and doing
selection criteria, but Get That Job was the only book that showed me
what I should write. Everything else was full of theory and fluff. I
was looking for something that would tell me what to do and how to do
it and this is exactly what I got. Not only did it help me write my
application but I also got the job which I applied for, which I think
is largely thanks to your publication.
I recommended your publication to two internal applicants and was
astounded by the quality of the applications they submitted! We will be
recommending it to others and would like to use your advice on our next
internal application writing course.

I had this book recommended to me at an internal seminar I went to
for government jobs. I got a copy of it yesterday and I learnt more in
ten minutes than I did in the whole three hour seminar! I've already
started my application and am really excited about how my selection
criteria are shaping up. I will let you know how I go.
I just wanted to drop a quick email to let you know that I got an
interview after following your selection criteria writing
advice. This was my 20th application - I wish I'd found your
publication 19 applications ago. Thankyou and I will be recommending
your books to others.
After reading this book I found a job, applied for it (which this book
made quick and easy), had an interview and got the job! If I
hadn't stumbled across your website I'm sure I'd still be in my boring
old job.Thank you!
I've worked for the Victorian State Government for 10 years and thought
I knew it all ... and then I found this website! I'm amazed
at how many of my assumptions were wrong, and how much I didn't know at

I purchased this book for my son, who had applied for a few APS
positions but had not been successful. After following advice from this
book, especially regarding interview preparation, he was successful in
the next position he applied for. I have been employed myself in the
APS for well over a decade, in various departments, & I have
recommended this book to a number of people as a great guide.
