Group Activity: Example STAR response
Using the STAR method, we’ve come up with an example of how you might plan and set out your
evidence.
– Situation: role as Research Support Officer at XYZ Bank.
– Task: needed to ensure that managers were kept informed of policies and procedures.
– Action or approach: initiated monthly newsletter, which was emailed to each manager. Took responsibility for writing
the main articles. This involved obtaining ideas and input from other stakeholders to ensure that the articles reflected
managers’ needs in terms of content and language.

consistently excellent. Received divisional achievement award for newsletter quality.

What’s
behind the
questions?
Assessing if an employer is a good fit
What is the main purpose of the organisation?
How is the organisation speaking about itself?
Who are its clients / customers?
What does the organisation see as critical to its success?
Does all of this speak to you? How?
Where are the gaps? Are you OK with that? Why?
Remember an interview is a two-way conversation –
observe and ask questions so you can make the best
decision you can.

Let’s assume you have found the right ones, you are monitoring everything relevant and you have found a few job ads that sound perfect. Now: How do you read the ad properly? Where is the information?
  5. Tempe to find an Amazon job ad to use for this slide – look at digital pulse report for ideas on skills and technical attributes needed for the role Blue -  Green – the organisation and how these match your values and interests Yellow – the skills they are looking / what have you done to show that you can do the job / what transferrable skills they have to bring to the role What are you doing – volunteering / part time work / leadership roles C&S
