      What to Avoid

      Avoid giving an answer that makes it seem like you blame others or shirk responsibility when you feel unprepared or uncomfortable. Instead, show the interviewer that you take accountability for your success.

      Pro Tip

      The interviewer is asking you to be a storyteller. You can 'talk about a time when...' by forming a brief story using the STAR method. STAR is an acronym for Situation, Task, Action, Result. Using this framework will ensure that you provide the interviewer with the right amount of information and detail to form a compelling and memorable response.
