Prepare anecdotes. Anticipate that you’ll be asked to recall examples from your previous experiences. Come up with these examples ahead of time so you’re ready to answer. One way to share an example of your ability to problem-solve is to use the PAR outline: Problem, Action and Result.
P – What was the project, problem or performance objective that needed to be addressed?
A – Describe the specific action you took and highlight your contributions that led to a successful outcome.
R – Pinpoint the positive result.These anecdotes will help you describe your role and accomplishments with clarity and detail that will make you a memorable candidate.
