Candidates inside government know—and those outside soon discover—that obtaining concrete information on evaluation methods used in written and oral government exercises or useful feedback on results is problematic. Front-line Public Service Commission and departmental human resources contacts for recruitment and promotion processes are often uninformed about the nature of exercises which they administer, and unable to provide explanations about score tabulation or assessment boards.
Our Debriefing on Test, In-Basket, Simulation or Interview Results is based on 25 years of experience with government competitions—longer and wider in scope than the experience of most government staff and consultants who develop, invigilate and mark them.
To enable you to understand and pursue information that can help your candidacy, our 1.25 hour debriefing service, including pre-work by us to review your application, provides:
An explanation of what is really evaluated and how that is actually done in competitions
An incisive discussion of your particular exercise and the results you obtained
Suggestions on what you should ask if a debriefing can be arranged with government personnel overseeing your competition
Avenues you can pursue to get your score reviewed or to acquire your assessment board report
Advice about logistical or possible accommodation advantages to explore before you participate in future competitions
Who Can Benefit from our Debriefing Advice?
The debriefing will help individuals in government and external candidates alike, at all levels, who want to understand the underlying intent and scoring methodology common to public-service competitions—and find out how to take action on their results.
