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.
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.
Click GET STARTED. You’ll now be taken to screen with a form for all the major categories that make up your interview story including:
1. Situation / Task (or Problem)
4. Competencies Demonstrated
Fill each of these sections out and then click SAVE.
To review, edit or export your story click VIEW SAVED STORIES on the upper part of the ANSWER BUILDER pages.
You’ll then be take to the My Answers section where you can access your story to edit it, or export it as a Word document or simple text file.
