When you’re on an interview, you’re going to be asked to talk about instances from your background that highlight a particular competency or skillset. These are “interview stories” and you need to be armed with a few of them at every interview.

Using the S.T.A.R. Method for developing answers to behavioral questions, we’ve created a simple way for you to build these interview stories. It’s called the ANSWER BUILDER module.

Step 1:

Click "Practice" and the "Answer Builder" on the top navigation bar, and you’ll be take to an overview page that highlights the S.T.A.R. approach.
