Ready to win your next job interview in Belgium? Your job interview preparation starts now. It’s essential to learn the latest interviewing models used in multinational corporations operating in the global economy. One of them is called the STAR model> It stands simply for this: Situation, Task, Action, Results

Using the STAR model to follow when answering questions in a job interview gives the interviewer a clear and comprehensive way to understand you. It shows them in a nutshell this: what was the project context, what were your own individual roles and responsibilities and what was the outcome or achievement.

Situation or Task

Describe the situation that you were in or the task that you needed to accomplish. You must describe a specific event or situation, not a generalized description of what you have done in the past. Be sure to give enough detail for the interviewer to understand. This situation can be from a previous job, from a volunteer experience, or any relevant event.

Action you took

Describe the action you took and be sure to keep the focus on you. Even if you are discussing a group project or effort, describe what you did — not the efforts of the team. Don’t tell what you might do, tell what you did.

Results you achieved

What happened? How did the event end? What did you accomplish? What did you learn?
