Deciding how many examples to use in a key selection criteria response.

When writing up responses to a set of key selection criteria, there is a fine line between how lengthy, detailed and exhaustive your responses will be.

Generally speaking, I suggest keeping your responses to a maximum half-a-page length, unless the employer has specified otherwise.

But when it comes to deciding how many examples to include in one response (as there can be many, many examples that we just can't seem to choose from) my suggestion is to pick out the best two examples and include them.

If you feel adding in two examples pushes the response over the edge in terms of being lengthy, then it makes senses to stick to one example in that case.

Addressing selection criteria is time-consuming indeed. So, why not hand this job over to the experts at Client Centric who specialise in writing professional, well written and concise responses.
