#21 Decipher past experiences via the STAR method

Issues

During interviews, candidates who are especially good atcommunicating can sometimes succeed in impressing theirinterviewer while remaining vague. On the other hand, they may havedifficulty presenting their past experiences in a clear and structuredway.

Actions taken

To guide the presentation of candidates' career pathsand professional experiences during interviews, the French scale-upManoMano has generalized the use of the STAR method (Situation,Task, Action, Result). This method leads the candidate to answer onlyopen-ended questions, such as: “Is there a project you are proud ofhaving carried out?” while trying to decipher what the initial situationwas, what task was personally carried out, how it was carried out, andwhat result was obtained.

Confirmed results

The STAR method allows candidates to expressthemselves freely so they can present their professional experiencesin a more open and detailed manner than they might with overlyoriented questions that require greater precision.
