Internal Quality Assurance:

Applicant Qualifications

We require that anyone seeking to be employed by our agency meet the following qualifications:

  • Have at least two years of experience in the area they want to work
  • Clean criminal background
  • Pass drug/alcohol screen

Applicant Qualifications

It is vital that you understand these skills, and that you can show how you have developed them, in order to write a successful job application.
  • Effective leadership and management
  • Good communication
  • Planning and research skills
  • Resilience
  • Self-management
  • Teamwork and interpersonal skills
  • Relevant work experience

Managers will hire people they like before they hire the most qualified or experienced applicant. That’s the bottom line. Never let the supposed job qualifications or experience requirements stand in your way of applying. If you know you can handle the job, you are probably the employee the employer wants. This, of course, doesn’t work for most technical jobs, but the point is to try to be polite and likable during your interview.

What makes you think you are qualified for this position?

Interviewer: “Why do you think you are qualified for this position?” OK answer: “I am qualified for this position because I have the skills you need and the experience to back it up.” Better answer: “I believe I am the most qualified for the job because I have completed 15 years in this field.
