STAR

If you're applying for a role within the Public Sector you're likely to be asked to address selection criteria.  As SCC works primarily with federal government clients you'll find that we ask you to address criteria with each role you'd like to apply for.

Selection criteria describe the personal qualities, skills, abilities, knowledge and qualifications that the client would like candidates to have.  Answering these criteria well is the trick getting through to the interview stage.

STAR is a methodology that ticks the boxes and helps you to sell your experience well.  Put simply STAR refers to;

Situation - provide a brief outline of the situation or setting
Task - outline what you did
Approach or action - outline how you did it
Result - describe the outcomes.

Contact SCC and speak to our Resource Managers if you'd like to find out more about how using the STAR methodology could give you a head start when applying for your new role.
