Selection criteria sample: Demonstrated analytical and research skills

The response to this selection criterion is modelled on the STAR approach.

At university, I successfully completed many research projects that required high-level analytical skills. I also undertook special project work with Professor Cavendish that required extensive literature research and analysis of organisational management theories.

This special project was an opportunity to develop my quantitative research skills by analysing statistical data. I also utilised my qualitative research skills by interviewing proponents of different theories. I completed the research within the specified timeframe and presented the results according to university standards.

My contribution was formally recognised by the faculty at a sociological seminar and I was subsequently asked to co-author an academic paper with Professor Cavendish that was accepted for publication in Organisational Monthly.
