How to Ace a Behavioral Interview Question

Employers are asking behavioral questions during and interview which seek specific examples of behavior from past experiences .  These questions are based on the idea that actions you took in the past are predictors of how you will react to future situations.

For example: Tell me about a creative solution you developed in approaching a problem.  It is very important that you give a specific example from your previous experience.

The “STAR” technique can be helpful to use here.  First describe the Situation or Task you needed to accomplish.  Then, describe the specific Actions you took to complete the task.  Lastly, be sure to list the Results you achieved.  Be specific about what happened, what you learned and what was accomplished.
