The STAR Method


( / )

Please select all options.

The STAR Method (Situation, Task, Action and Result) is a framework to help you to prepare, reflect on, and answer behavioral interview questions effectively. It’s not a tool to memorize “perfect answers.” Rather, it’s a skeleton key to unlock your strengths and experiences.

If you’re a recruiter, understanding the method enables you to uncover the skills, behaviors and knowledge required for a particular role.

Use the STAR Technique at any time to help yourself (and others) to recognize strengths, build confidence and think more positively.
