Guide and Best Practices

Star method is a technique job seekers can use to prepare themselves for behavioral-style interviews or interviews that focus on determining whether the candidate will be able to effectively handle situations associated with the job. The STAR stands for Situation, Task, Action, Result and it can be ideally used to prepare answers for questions that are based on teamwork, planning, problem-solving, leadership, conflict, stress, etc.

How to use the star method to ace your interview

  • Start by understanding and assessing the requirements of the job you are applying for. Specifically, focus on the skills the company is requesting.
  • Take some time to think about your past experiences in your personal or professional life to find success stories that may be relevant to those skills.
  • Choose a Creately star interview template for the exercise. Visualizing your story will help you organize potential answers, practice and recall them easily during the interview.
  • Pick a success story and set the scene or describe the situation you were in. Provide enough detail (be concise and specific) to help the interviewer understand why your example is relevant to the question asked.
  • Next, explain the task you were assigned or what were your responsibilities in that particular situation.
  • Describe the actions you took to handle the situation or the challenge. If a team was involved, focus more on what you did to solve the problem.
  • Share the results or the outcome of your effort. Also, describe what you learned from the experience at the end of the event.
  • You can create star method templates for various questions you presume to face during the interview. You can quickly go over them prior to your interview with the Creately mobile app.
