Finally – A step-by-step easy-to-follow system guaranteed to help you secure interviews easily and consistently in the public service sector and LAND YOU THE JOB YOU WANT…without frustration!
Tired of spending hours on writing government applications, only to receive a rejection letter?
Are you good at your job, but struggle writing about yourself?
Are you uncertain what government applications require, and what you really need to include in your application?
Did you fail to secure that well deserved promotion, or want to make sure you secure a promotion?
Hi, I’m Carolyn Smith, one of Australia’s leading career masters. With over 20 years experience in writing public sector applications, I’ve crafted more than 3,000 career stories that have secured interview for my clients.
Some of my clients have even nicknamed me the ‘Master of Selection Criteria’ and these days, I often have to turn work away due to my heavy booking schedule (most of it referral), due to the large number of requests I receive for professional help.
So if you want to GET IN or GET PROMOTED in the Public Service Sector, you’ve come to the right place.
Did you know that the reality is your success in the public service sector, hinges on how effective your application is (not how good you are at your job)? Imagine…..
- Attracting interviews like crazy, so you can select from a range of roles, rather than having to settle for second best.
- Secure a promotion and gain the respect, attention, and support from selection panel members, clients and peers.
- Finally get into the public service sector, enjoying the benefits of a challenging career, with unlimited potential for advancement and progression.
- Obtaining that well deserved pay rise – $5,000, $10,000, even $20,000 or more
But here’s the problem…
Unless you know exactly what is required of you, possess the tools and take the steps required of you, it can be downright difficult, if not impossible to even secure an interview….
You see, many popular positions in government can receive up to 2,400 candidates and even if the position is not that popular, it is still not uncommon for a selection panel committee to receive up to 40 applications from suitably qualified applicants. (In fact the average is that around 50 candidates will be applying for exactly the same role as YOU).
But it doesn’t have to be….
|In my updated and best seller step-by-step e-book, ‘How to GET IN and GET PROMOTED in the Public Service Sector, I will reveal to you the easy, ‘connect–the-dots’ system for planning, writing and submitting an application that will ensure you secure an interview, so you can GET IN and GET PROMOTED in the Public Service Sector.
This e-book is UNIQUE, in that while other books outline the process, this e-book goes further. It arms you with the knowledge relating to the inherent flaws in the selection process, as well as giving you insider tips on how to construct high quality applications for all the different job application requirements you will encounter in the public service sector.
It is also the only resource of this type with recommendations and endorsements from leading national and international career professionals!
|“This book is the definitive reference to employment in the public sector from the industry’s Master. Carolyn Smith shares her secrets and proven strategies to success in a well-written, step-by-step process that will have you getting in and getting promoted in no time.” Laura DeCarlo, President of Career Directors International, Author of Resumes for Dummies, 7th Edition, Interviewing: The Gold Standard and Interview Pocket RX; co author of Job Search Bloopers|
|“if you are facing the daunting challenges of the public sector application process, this book is a must-read!
Having written applications at all levels and for nearly every Australian government and department, I know the tips and tricks that make applications rank at the top of the interview list, and this book lists them all!
Don’t miss out on this essential step-by-step guide to the Australian selection criteria process” Gillian Kelly, international award-winning Resume Writer & Founding Director of Outplacement Australia and The Career Agency.
In this comprehensive, yet easy to use e-manual, I provide you with the FULL BLUEPRINT, and guide you through the whole process, step-by-step, so you can create applications that will secure interviews!
In this e-manual, I reveal what really happens during the selection process.
- Everything you need to know about how the government recruitment and selection process works.
- What agencies and professional recruiters DON’T want to tell you about the selection process (I’m falling foul of the politically correct version of the MERIT selection process outlined in other guide books and government Websites, and I’m sure I won’t get a contract with government for spilling the beans, but I really want you to know what the reality is and the nitty, gritty behind the selection process.
- The steps you MUST TAKE, before you even decide whether it is worth applying for the role. This is really crucial, as it could make or break your application.
- Why the process is viewed by many as less than transparent, fair and incapable of selecting the best candidate and why understanding this will ensure you get through to interview.
You won’t find this information so clearly spelt out anywhere else, and this information alone is probably worth the cover price.
“I just finished reading your ebook on selection criteria writing. Your book had more meat in the subject matter than the other books and resources available online. Thanks! Claire P.
Hi Carolyn – Thank you – I found the information on selection criteria writing, just so helpful. I e-mailed my application at 4.50 p.m. Friday evening and 6.05 p.m. Saturday evening I received a phone call and was given a brief interview over the phone. I have a full panel interview tonight at 5 p.m. and if I get through that successfully, will have another final interview in a few days. Thanks again – Wendy

“Wow! I finally got a chance to look at your e-book last night and I thought it was amazing. I’m only too happy to send you through a book review quote for it and will whip something up in the next day or so.
It must have taken ages to write. It was great to see something so step-by-step and yet still comprehensive and my head was nodding all the way through it.
I could also hear you echoing a lot of my thoughts on the actual value of selection criteria in selecting the right candidates. I guess that particularly comes when you consistently see less qualified candidates get to the interview when they have the help of a professional writer, and on the flipside – highly skilled candidates fall by the wayside when they try and struggle through on their own and can’t evidence their value in words. As you said though, it’s the system and everyone has to play within the rules as they are set at the moment, even if I think the government probably doesn’t always get the best person”.
