Medical-device-recruiterOne strategy for job-seekers preparing for behavioral interviews is to use the STAR Technique, as outlined below.

(This technique is often referred to as the SAR and PAR techniques as well.)

 

 

S

ituation or

T

ask

Describe the situation that you were in or the task that you needed to accomplish. You must describe a specific event or situation, not a generalized description of what you have done in the past. Be sure to give enough detail for the interviewer to understand. This situation can be from a previous job, from a volunteer experience, or any relevant event.
 

A

ction you took

Describe the action you took and be sure to keep the focus on you. Even if you are discussing a group project or effort, describe what you did — not the efforts of the team. Don’t tell what you might do, tell what you did.
 

R

esults you achieved

What happened? How did the event end? What did you accomplish? What did you learn?
