This is the first time I have made it to a government interview. Thanks for making me sound like the person they wanted.
I have just completed and submitted my application. I would like to thank you and especially Kristie for her help. I can’t say thank you enough for all the time and effort she put in to my application. She was always prompt with her replies and this made things easier for me. I liked that she knew what questions to ask me to help my application. I will be recommending your company to anyone that needs help with their selection criteria.
Now I've seen your finished product, I can see why I had been unsuccessful in the past. I'll let you know how I get on at the interview.
Great news - had approval from the delegate and start the new APS position Monday 07 Feb 11; negotiated a mid pay-band start as well. Ross, your last phone-call going through the interview questions was invaluable on-top of all the CV/SC support. I Have dealt with Trans-Civ Team twice now since leaving the Navy with outstanding results both times and will certainly be recommending you to those who are job hunting - thank you all!
I feel so much more confident about how I am supposed to answer behavioural interview questions. Thanks Ross.
Although I missed out on getting an interview at the Attorney General's Department, I was called by the head of the panel to compliment me on the quality of my application. I was advised that my application was better than most that made it to interview and that I missed the interview stage only due to my lack of specific experience. They were very impressed with the CV and the selection criteria.
Your comprehensive interview training has helped me to understand my transferable skills and make the move much easier from DOTARS to DFAT.
Before receiving the training, I was quite terrified at the prospect of drafting applications, addressing selection criteria and being interviewed. I was skeptical that I could successfully get through the process as, after 23 years in the Army, the whole thing was alien to me. With the training, I was able to successfully address selection criteria and made it to interview. Then, when it came down to it, although I was nervous, I found the interview process far easier than I had imagined, thanks to your help. I am waiting to hear the outcome from the interview but feel confident that, thanks to you Ross, and the team at Trans-Civ, I will win the position I applied for. I would happily recommend Trans-Civ to anyone looking to successfully transition from a military career into the civilian workforce.
