STAR interview technique

You think the interview went perfectly – eye contact, steady voice, dashing smile – but somehow you didn’t get the job. You mentioned every relevant piece of work experience you’ve acquired, but your chances may have been dashed by not using the ‘STAR’ technique. What is ‘STAR’? It stands for Situation, Task, Approach.

Job interviews are always exciting. There’s the elevated mood when you get an email inviting you to interview. You come in on time, you answer all the questions and all in all, you feel like you’ve made a good impression.
