Job Applicant Skills – 2 Day Intensive Workshop
This two-day workshop is our intensive training program for job applicants. It allows more time for practical exercises and feedback. We cover a wider range of selection techniques and provide more tools and techniques to support you through the whole process.
Who should attend? Government staff and external applicants
Includes: Lots of opportunities for practice and feedback
Topics covered in the workshop:
Day One – the first day will focus on preparing a professional resume, gathering your examples of skills and experience and writing a statement or cover letter. We will provide you with an understanding of governments’ merit selection processes. You will develop practical skills in analysing roles for which you can apply, understanding capability frameworks, how to work with them and how to provide evidence of your claims to a role. You will then have the opportunity to apply these skills and knowledge to improve your current resume and supporting statement before returning for the second day.
Day Two – this day will focus on preparing for an interview. We will cover conversational interviews as well as the traditional selection interview approaches. You will have an opportunity to prepare for, and practice, responding to typical interview questions and panel probes, as well as preparing a convincing closing statement. You will learn how to manage both your verbal and non-verbal communication at interview and we will help you develop practical strategies for managing your nerves. We will also provide tips and techniques that will help you handle other, increasingly common, selection techniques such as work tests and psychometric assessments. You will learn how to confidently present yourself throughout the selection process.
