Generally, it is a good idea to use each selection criteria as a heading followed by a dot-pointed list highlighting how you meet that specific criterion. Making a claim that you know something or have done something is inadequate. Take note of the keyword in the criteria - demonstrated is one which is frequently used and to address this you need to demonstrate how you meet the criteria. Show or show understanding suggests you should give examples of how you know what this criteria means.
Your whole application is an opportunity to sell yourself and convince the employer that you are the right person for the job. Presentation counts!Content counts!Honesty counts! Remember if you are not successful this time, perhaps it was not the right position for you, no matter how much you wanted the job. You can move on by examining your application for the improvements you can make for the next time.
