The Star Method

Applying for a job? Want to share your skills in a meaningful way?

If you're looking for a method to make you a memorable candidate try out the STAR method.

STAR is an acronym that stands for:

Situation: Set the scene and give the details of your example.
Task: Describe what your responsibility was in that situation.
Action: Explain exactly what steps you took to address it.
Result: Share what outcomes your actions achieved.

Practice the above & keep some anecdotal stories in your bag.

Those who tell better stories stand out.
