A covering letter "It is the responsibility of the candidate to clearly outline that they meet each of the screening criteria (i.e. Education and Experience Qualifications, both Essential and Assets, if applicable). Please note that it is not sufficient to only state that the requirement is met or to provide a listing of current responsibilities, rather the candidate must provide concrete examples that illustrate how they meet the requirement (including the duration of the experience, if required). Lack of EXAMPLES and DETAILS may result in your application being rejected as the Assessment Board will have insufficient information to determine whether or not you meet the qualifications. One effective approach would be to use the wording of each experience criterion as a heading and then demonstrate that you have the required experience and ensure that clear and accurate details are provided. Your resume may be used to validate the information provided in the cover letter."
