Job interviews can be a terrifying experience! That’s the problem Standouty set out fix. Our mission was clear, to find the best way to help job hunters prepare for their interview, wow the panel and get their DREAM job.

The best way for us to do that was developing the most extensive database of model interview questions and answers available on the web.

We first identified interview questions and answers by specific jobs. Through considerable research we have identified the most common interview questions asked for these jobs and the best answers sure to impress.

Answering Interview Questions – Standouty’s STAR Methodology

All of our interview questions and answers are based on the STAR method. This is recognised across the industry as the BEST method for answering interview questions. If used well the panel will be unaware of its use but consider your answer to be well constructed, methodical and just plain AMAZING.

The STAR Technique involves constructing your answer in the following way:

SITUATION

Set the context of your answer. Tell the panel, where, when and why this situation came to be. For example, “Whilst working in my current role, we were holding an event in which 100 plus people were due to attend any minute. That’s when I was notified the caterers weren’t able to make it.”

TASK

What did you have to do. For example, “I had to organise alternative caterers and without the guests knowing. The failure of the event would have been a disaster for the company.”

ACTION

What did you actually do. For example, “I spoke to the venue owner and we identified other caterers who may be able to help at short notice. I contacted all of them and identified one who could cater the event albeit one hour later than planned.”

RESULT

How did the situation play out. For example, “Catering was provided in line with guest expectations. The evening, after this initial hiccup, went seamlessly. I was congratulated by the senior managers for sorting out what could have been a catastrophe.”

Constructing your answers in this way will ensure you fully address the question / scenario given and the criteria the panel are measuring you against.
