Be a STAR at Behavioral Based Interviewing:DHHS utilizes Behavioral Based Interviewing questions as part of our interviewing process. This allows us to learn about your past behavior in particular situations. Past behavior is the best indicator to predict your future behavior.
How to answer a behavioral based question?
The STAR method is a structured way of responding to a behavioral-based interview question by discussing the specific
result of the situation you are describing.
STAR (Situation, Task, Action and Result) is a technique to provide all relevant information about a specific situation in a succinct and clear format.
How to prepare for your interview?
Practice! Recall recent situations that show favorable behaviors or actions, especially involving work experience, leadership, teamwork, initiative, planning, and customer service. Prepare short descriptions of each situation; be ready to give details if asked. Practice the STAR method. The best way to "kill" the nerves is preparation!
Dress for success! Business casual attire is recommended for the day of the interview.
