Personal Specification/Statement and Interview Preparation Strategies.
There are three parts to answering application/interview questions:
Part 1) What is your understanding of the question?
Part 2) Give a case example of how you have demonstrated this in practice?
Part 3) Reflection.
You can achieve all three by following the STAR Approach:
S – Situation: When, where, with whom (contextualise)
T – Task: Describe the situation or task you want to offer as evidence
A – Action: What did you do? What was your contribution? How did you make things happen?
R – Result: What was the result/outcome? (preferably positive) What did you learn?
