Career Centre Advertisment Help 

The Career Centre Advertisement box will be advertised on the website. It should include enough information about the key screening criteria, so that candidates can determine if the job appears to be a fit.

Including Competencies
Do not list all of the competencies in the advertisement - that overwhelms candidates, and isn't necessary for them to see at the time they apply.  At the time a candidate is deciding to apply, they need to know about only those competencies which will help them self-screen.  Typically, these are the knowledge competencies and perhaps a few relevant skill competencies, and are often the same as those which the staffing panel will use to screen applications.  This selection of competencies is typically worded in paragraph form in the advertisement, such as "our candidate of choice will have knowledge of______ and the ability to _________"  or short bullet form.  Inclusion of these competencies in the advertisement also allows candidates to tailor their application to the position.  Sentences such as "typically, the knowledge and skills required for this job would be achieved through ___________" help candidates self-screen, as well.  For those candidates invited to interview, the full list of competencies is shared through the invitation correspondence.
