[INFOGRAPHIC] Have you mastered S.T.A.R.?
Do you remember this infographic we did on online form tips? In fact, the information is also applicable for later stages such as the face-to-face interview!
Here’s a quick example of how you can use STAR and what you could say in an interview!
S: During a meeting for a team assignment, my group got into an argument about a question we had to address.
T: As team leader, I had to resolve the conflict and get everyone back on the same page ASAP.
A: Firstly, I regained control over the meeting by getting everyone’s attention. I then acknowledged both sides of the argument. Finally, I suggested taking some parts from both proposals and combining them into one idea, to help the parties reach a compromise. I also added in my own suggestions to make the proposal even better.
R: Both sides saw the merit of what I was proposing, and agreed to collaborate to complete the question. The rest of the meeting followed without issues.
