How to answer behavioral interview questions with the STAR Method?

Behavioral interview questions are more about your experiences, rather than you as a person. 

For example, the interviewer could ask you to the following: Q: “Tell me about a time where you resolved a conflict at the workplace.” 

 


The goal of this type of interview questions is to determine how you respond to specific issues or problems. 

Anyone can say that they excel in a stressful environment. Not everyone, however, can back it up with a story or an experience. 

The simplest way to approach behavioral interview questions is the STAR method 

•(S) Situation - Describe the situation in which the event took place. 


•(T) Task - Talk about the tasks you had to complete in order to solve the problem. 


•(A) Action - Explain the actions you took to complete the tasks. 


•(R) Results - Explain what kind of results you achieved. When possible, mention numbers and quantifiable facts (“This improved sales” VS. “This improved cold lead response rates by 20%”)
