Statement of Interest (SOI) (Canada)

Most government job competitions—whether for entry-level officer positions or for promotions—require candidates to submit a written statement-of-interest (SOI)when applying. The length of the text varies depending on the Department or Agency involved.

Our Statement of Interest Counselling helps you deliver what is needed. We assist you to make sense of the various government documents which refer to the position(s) you are seeking, provide a proven method to develop and construct your defining "sales pitch", send you a detailed editorial review of your initial draft, and conclude with personal telephone coaching on the final text before you submit it.

Counselling Overview

During the 2.5 hour session covering our pre-work and personal coaching you will benefit from:

  • Informed advice on the purpose and evaluation of statements-of-interest
  • Precise instruction on which government documents to rely on in planning your submission
  • An analytical framework which draws out your assets in relation to specific job requirements
  • Tips on what to avoid including, and how to use your writing time and the space available to your advantage
  • A detailed, annotated critique of your initial draft
  • A telephone consultation to finalize your text carefully before you submit it in the competition
