Revised and updated, this current digital edition (PDF) prepares a public sector applicant to handle two significant changes in job application processes.
The first is the shift to primarily asking for pitches and statements of claims. This shift means applicants accustomed to writing responses to selection criteria or capabilities must learn a new way of writing. A job application is now more a marketing exercise, explaining how what you have to offer will make a difference in a particular role and organisation.
Role descriptions are not always entirely clear about what applicants are expected to write in applications. This edition provides detailed guidance on what information to look for and how to prepare an application.
The second change relates to shifts in employee skill demands and working arrangements. Public sector employees are increasingly needing skills and knowledge relating to digital literacy, risk management, leadership capabilities, social interaction and cross-boundary collaboration. The COVID-19 pandemic has had a major impact on Australia’s economy and workforce, changing how people work.
Based on a sense making framework called Mental Nutrition, and a career management perspective, this edition shows you how to write evidence-based, results-focused, job-matched resumes, pitches, statements of claims, and selection criteria and capability-based responses, plus how to present a convincing case at a job interview.
People interested in working in the public sector can potentially fall into many traps. This ebook provides know-how on how to avoid these traps. The focus is on:
- explaining how to manage your career by gaining some self-knowledge and keeping records.
- understanding public sector selection processes.
- knowing how to conduct contextual analyses of public sector roles.
- knowing how to structure an application and choose relevant content.
- knowing how to write clearly and succinctly to meet page and word limits.
- understanding results and value.
- knowing how to tailor a resume to a role.
- knowing how to strategically prepare for an interview.
Contextual analysis continues to be the basis of a strong application with particular attention to four work characteristics: volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity. The seventh edition helps you understand the nature of complexity and how it applies to judging seniority level, leadership and example choice.
