Tips & Tricks Interview Questions The STAR Method

The STAR Method

During an interview, anytime you hear the words “tell me about a time when ...” or “describe a situation where ...” just think STAR.

Situation or Task

Describe the situation or task you were in:

  • Who was part of the situation?
  • What was the purpose of the task?
  • Why did the situation happen?


Explain what action steps you took.

  • What was your role/part in the situation?
  • What specific action steps did you take?
  • Why did you take those steps?


Discuss the results of your actions:

  • Did you accomplish your goal/objectives?
  • Were you successful or not?
  • Were you efficient and productive?
  • What did you learn?

To make sure that your interview is full of STAR answers, brainstorm activities/projects you've done and what skills learned as a result. Then practice your responses out loud.
