STAR Response Method

STAR Key Concepts:
STAR is an acronym for four key concepts. Each concept is a step the job candidate can take when answering a behavioural Key Selection Criteria or interview question. By following all four steps, the position candidate will provide a comprehensive answer.
The four steps referenced in the acronym are the following:
Situation: Describe the context within which you performed a job or faced a challenge at work. For example, perhaps you were working on a group project, or you had a conflict with a co-worker. This situation can be drawn from a work experience, a volunteer position, or any other relevant event. Be as specific as possible.
Task: Next, describe your responsibility in that situation. Perhaps you had to help your group complete a project within a tight deadline, resolve a conflict with a co-worker, or hit a sales target.
Action: You then describe how you completed the task or endeavoured to meet the challenge. Focus on what you did rather than what your team, boss, or co-worker did.
Result: Finally, explain the outcomes or results generated by the action taken. It may be helpful to emphasize what you accomplished or what you learned.
