    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at NSW Government (Sydney (Australia)) in April 2013.

    Interview

    Approached the Chief of Staff (CoS) expressing an interest in the policy area and how I felt I could make a contribution to the portfolio. Following an initial meeting with CoS that covered experience, political inclination and policy perspective I met with the Minister and discussed the role and office.

    Interview Questions

    • How will your background add value to the portfolio - how do you view current policy reform - what policy reforms do you feel are a priority for the Government in the next five years.   Answer Question
