  • Skills: relevant to the position, this may be professional and/or technical skills, inter-personal skills, leadership skills, administrative skills and any other skills relevant to the position. These skills can include relevant skills obtained outside the paid work force.
  • Qualifications: can include both academic and professional qualifications.
  • Experience: should be relevant to the advertised position. Breadth, variation and depth of experience may all be considered.
  • Potential: for future development. This requires a judgment to be made about the applicant’s capacity to “grow” in the situation.
