Hey everybody down Gorge of it here job interview tools in this video I'm going to show you the formula for answering behavioral questions and then I'm going to break it apart and give you all the strategies that you need to implement the formula and then I'm going to give you a couple of examples to show you how it's done sound like a good plan so let's get started let's talk about how to answer behavioral interview questions using the star formula now if you don't know this star stands for situation task action and result and the first thing that you want to do when answering a behavioral question is describe a work-related situation or a task that you needed to accomplish and you want to be concise the next thing you want to do is describe the action that you took don't tell them what you might do or you would do you need to tell them what you did and finally you need to describe what happened this is the result phase what did you accomplish what did you learn how much time or money did you save and most importantly does your results solve the problem that you described in step one I mean that's it that's the formula for answering any behavioral question now behavioral or competency-based interviews are simply a set of questions that ask you to talk about examples from your past work experience so you can help an interviewer figure out you know what your strengths are behavioral interviewers are going to look at three parts they're gonna look at the problem the action and the result of your answer and they're going to take notes about how you answered the question now you don't necessarily have to talk about all three parts in order it's best to talk about the part that your interviewer is most interested in hearing now before your interview I want you to think about your stories and your experiences and how to best make your point every situation is different so you need to be prepared for what you think they will want to hear now let's take a look at some strategies that you can use on your next interview number one carefully listen to your interviewer and the questions they are asking you and let them finish asking you the question and don't jump to any conclusions about how to answer it you might even want to repeat the question back to them to help you get a better feel for it number two carefully choose your language when answering their questions try to use language that is specific to your industry so you look like more of an expert number three before your interview research keywords terms buzzwords that might be used by the company that you're interviewing with and incorporate that language into your answers number four when giving your answers don't go into extreme detail just give them the basic facts because this allows for two things one it shortens the length of your answer making it more digestible to your interviewer and basically they'll have a better idea of what you said because you explained it in a shorter and simpler manner number two a shorter answer allows your interviewer to ask follow-up questions about some of the details and now this gives you the opportunity to further demonstrate your competencies by answering those specific questions and you'll see what I mean in my examples that I give later in this video okay back to the list number five carefully choose examples from your past that you want to talk about and I say that because if you're unwilling to go into detail about certain topics then avoid bringing those up in the first place number six one of the best tips I have for you is not to blame anyone for failure on answering and interviewers questions even if someone else is to blame it's your goal to remain positive when answering their questions companies don't like to hire people with a negative influence and who failed to take responsibility for their actions the only person that you can blame is yourself everyone else is off-limits you're not there to defend yourself you're there to get hired so don't act like you're there to defend yourself number seven the best way to answer their questions is to talk about the most important part first this strategy simply applies to our human nature we like to hear the best part first as it keeps us interested in the conversation and when you do this it's easier to keep them interested in you now I want to cover seven behavioral guidelines that will better prepare you for your next interview number one you need to identify the key competencies for the position that you're interviewing for basically you'd be to know how your strengths relate to the requirements for the position number two look back to your work history what are some of your strongest accomplishments that demonstrate you are highly skilled in each of the key competency areas for the position number three it's best not to list all of your accomplishments on your resume so you have other accomplishments to talk about during your interview number four choose accomplishments that are relevant to the job that fully demonstrate your skills don't talk about unrelated strengths because they don't want to hear them they want to hear what's related to the job number five think about the best way you can explain your accomplishments to an interviewer number six try not to prattle on with your answers keep them short and to the point number seven keep your answers positive and make sure your verbal communication supports your nonverbal communication so you want to use facial expressions move your hands just talk naturally and you should be fine okay that covers the top seven guidelines now let.
