WHAT IF ALL THAT CHANGED?
That’s why I created
KEY SELECTION CRITERIA MADE EASY! ©
I want you to have the same success I did and my clients did when we applied for public sector roles the first time we applied.
I want you to stand out, get noticed and land your dream public sector job with a message that sells you, that you’re confident to shout from rooftops and that hiring managers are immediately impressed with.
Because we all know that first impressions count!
SO WHAT’S IN THE PROGRAM?
LESSON 1 – WHY THE STAR METHOD ISN’T THE BEST METHOD
Yep. I disagree with the way it is explained on government websites and I tell you why it’s just not helping you write your selection criteria.
LESSON 2 – WHAT DOES THE EMPLOYER REALLY WANT TO HEAR?
I go through what is important for employers to hear and how you can make an impact appealing to what they’re really looking for.
LESSON 3 – EXAMPLES – WHICH ONES TO CHOOSE?
You’re not sure if the examples you have are strong enough.
This module will breakdown what types of examples make the strongest case to sell you!
LESSON 4 – HOW TO DECIPHER THE QUESTION
Questions inside questions. You think they’re trying to trick you. I go through the way to break them down, understand what they’re looking for and my step-by-step method for you to follow to ensure you have answered the whole question or questions!
LESSON 5 – MY UNIQUE INTERVIEW LANDING KEY FORMULA AND WHY IT’S BETTER
As a career marketing expert, I go through why my method and the way I explain it makes it easier for you to understand but also to implement – and who doesn’t want easy?
LESSON 6 – Step-by-Step the Interview Landing KSC Formula explained
This is where the gold is. I go through a very detailed example and show you how to use the formula and write your key selection criteria. Easy!
WHAT OTHER PEOPLE SAY ABOUT
KEY SELECTION CRITERIA MADE EASY ©
Being made redundant from a long-term Government management position left me feeling anxious and lost.
How would I find a new role?
What current methods are used to apply for and more importantly secure a role?
I was fortunate to participate in training provided by Athena Ali, The Get Noticed Coach. This program was just what I needed.
The shining light was a course on responding to Key Selection Criteria (KSC).
Too often I found myself struggling to correctly articulate myself when responding to KSC.
Athena’s unique 4 I’s principle, explained KSC in a way that was easily understood and also in a way that was different to the star method. It provided me with the framework to provide responses that correctly addressed the KSC.
It definitely made the difference between a job application and a ‘stand out’ application.
It also helped me understand how to frame my responses and create consistency between my written application and the interview, which gave me confidence.
After being unemployed for 7 months and numerous failed job applications, within 4 weeks of completing the KSC course I landed an interview, and ultimately the role, as a senior manager.
Thank you Athena Ali, the Get Noticed Coach.
Anthony Drago, Capital Equipment Manager at John Holland on the Victorian Heart Hospital Project
I was struggling to find work, and my resume was outdated and then I had to respond to key selection criteria also!
Athena’s 4I’s method for responding to key selection criteria helped me to prepare a succinct easy to read document that was quite powerful. It’s something I had never come across before.
I still use her proforma templates for my resume and key selection criteria.
I landed a role at Theatre Royal Sydney and could not be happier, it aligns with my values and interests so much.
Athena has been a huge support to me her online programs and coaching helped me to become confident and realise I had a lot to offer an employer.
I ended up finding enjoyable and fulfilling work.
I hope any of you reading this take her online courses and coaching and you’ll be on your way to a fantastic role too.
Gimhani Wickramasinghe, Theatre Royal Sydney
I took a year long break from an Industry I had been working in for almost 20 years. I found myself at the end of my time off ready to go back to work, however I didn’t want to go back to the same job I had always done and was looking for something a little bit different.
I recently completed Athena Ali, The Get Noticed Coach’s training program.
I found a job I was very interested in and using a lot of the tips Athena provided in the training, I tweaked my resume and put together a cover letter for a six figure government role, successfully landing an interview.
The application process in this instance did not require a key selection criteria response, however I got the email from the recruiter stating that the interview process encouraged applicants to use the STAR method when responding to the questions.
I knew Athena’s training had a whole module on this, so I studied up and really prepared well for the interview. I used Athena’s 4 I’s principle and had an example ready to go for each selection criteria and was prepared for any question they asked.
The interview went so well and I felt so calm knowing that I was prepared and didn’t have ‘think on my feet’ too much.
I’m happy to report that I was successful in obtaining the role and am very grateful for Athena’s key selection criteria training which ultimately resulted in me landing the position.
