How LONG Should Your Selection Criteria Responses Be?

Good selection criteria responses are not too long but concise and correct

Here at Client Centric, we write responses to key selection criteria that are not too long and not too short. Just the right length.


You don’t want to put the employer off your application by having a lengthy answer when writing a response.


Please think of how long it will take for them to read through your responses. Try and keep your answers to about two solid paragraphs or less than half a page long.


Make sure your sentences are easy to read and show clearly how your values, knowledge, skills, and experience satisfy the criteria. Be precise and make it relevant; you want to persuade them to continue reading and grab their attention.
