Preparing application documents

Most job vacancies require you to submit a resume, cover letter and sometimes statements against selection criteria or other documents that provide evidence of you meeting the key criteria required.

These documents allow a prospective employer to assess whether you have the right skills, knowledge, personal qualities and genuine passion to work in their organisation.

A strong resume and cover letter tailored for the position will improve your chance of being invited for an interview.
