quicko: selection criteria

When applying for a "real" job in Australia, there is an incredibly intense list of "Selection Criteria." These include "Essential" and "Desirable" qualities and qualifications, the answers to which must be provided in a thoroughly thought-out, typed document that accompanies the resume and cover letter. And you thought applying for jobs in America was painful!

The public service generally uses selection criteria (unless it's a field where they're just desperate for anyone they can get with a relevant cv) but the private sector mostly doesn't. At least that tends to be my experience as an engineer.
