Today I want to share an improvement to the STAR Method for answering behavioral interview questions.
The STAR method has existed for a very long time and is the most accepted method.
For those of you who may not be familiar with this approach, STAR is an acronym that stands for:
- S ituation you are facing
- T ask needing to be performed
- A ction taken
- R esult achieved
While it is the most accepted approach, it has an inherent problem.
This problem keeps answers from being as interesting and engaging as they are capable of being.
It also keeps them from holding the interviewer’s attention as much as they could – if designed differently.
There is a solution to solve these problems.
In the accompanying video, I share my first of two improvements to the standard approach.
It’s an easy change to make, and I’m convinced you will see the value in making it.
Stay tuned for my next post, where I’ll share my second improvement to the STAR Method.
