have found Selection Criteria Exposed incredibly helpful when writing
my own statements addressing selection criteria. I wasn't
sure what I was supposed to write, but now I know and I am much more
confident with my applications.
After buying and using The Selection Criteria Coach I have just been successful in gaining a position with the Customs Department. Just thought I would let you know that you can add another success story to your list.
I got one of your ebooks after someone on an internet forum suggested it. I am so glad I took their advice because it was a lifesaver. I wrote my application that afternoon, got an interview 2 weeks later, and then used your ebook again for help with my interview. Just waiting to hear the outcome now. I wish I hadn't wasted so much time looking on the internet for help when I should have just bought your book straight away.
After buying Get That Job for my fiance and almost forcing him to use it and apply for a government job, I'm pleased to say that he got an interview. I knew he could do it if he just tried. I'm sure Get That Job made the world of difference because he actually said the application wasn't that hard when he knew what he was doing. Thanks guys.
I used your selection criteria book and just got an interview with Centrelink. It was my first government job application. Fingers crossed for the interview.

Thanks to your practice interviews question book I just got a job with the ATO! They used quite a few questions that I had practiced out of your book, so I already knew what I was going to say and I'm sure that's why the interview went so well.

I went for the interview this morning and just got a phone call to say I got the job! Thank you soooo much for the books, without them I would not have been able to score the job that was right for me.

I just wanted to let you know that I got an interview for my 'dream job' after using Selection Criteria Exposed to help me with my selection criteria. I am sure it's what got me over the line, because there is no way I would have written an application like that on my own! I am about to buy Get That Job to help with my interview preparation.

I have all three of your selection criteria books and not only did they help me score my first government job, but only 6 months in I have just won a promotion! I truly do put it down to your advice and guidance which has been invaluable, thank you!

Thanks for Selection Criteria Exposed - now I know what I'm supposed to do!
I've just written an application that I'm really happy with after using Get That Job. I found the tools really helpful and made it much easier than trying to do it on my own.
I purchased this book (Get That Job) 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.

Thank you for writing such a brilliant guide for writing selection criteria. I seriously had no idea what I was doing and by the time I finished The Selection Criteria Coach I knew exactly what I had to do and followed your instructions for doing it. I got an interview about a month later and just found out today that I got the job I applied for. Couldn't have done it without your advice!

I've been employed in the Australian Public Service for 3 years and bought your book (The Selection Criteria Coach) to help me apply for a promotion. My last application was good because it obviously got me my current job, but I didn't want to risk anything with this promotion. I have to say this was the best investment I made because the help in the book was invaluable and I found out this morning that I got the promotion. 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 all.

Thank you so much for writing this publication (Get That Job!) I found that this advice was not only from an expert, but it was also very practical and together with the exercises it helped me understand government recruitment processes and helped me craft an application that got me a job first time.

Just a quick email to let you know that after 4 failed attempts I finally got a job after reading the book "Get That Job". Thanks!

I just bought "Get That Job! The Best Guide to Applying for a Government Job" and even though I haven't started using it yet, I just wanted to let you know how impressed I am after my first read though. Can't wait to start on my application!
Kumar K, ACT, 2006
I got the job first time - thanks!! (I have to admit I thought it would take a lot longer!)
I just wanted to let you know that I got the promotion I applied for after reading the book I bought from your site. They didn't even interview me - is this normal? Must have been a great application! Thanks again - it was great to get some "insider tips"

Wonderful to see a website focusing on government employment - none of the private companies even know there's a difference!
