Be a Star at your job interview!

The STAR technique will give you a good guideline: 

“Situation – Task – Action – Result”

Create answers to sample interview questions based on a template such as “Situation – Task – Action – Result” with specific details from your work experience. This is known as the STAR technique:


Situation

Describe a situation you were in.

A colleague was struggling with a task.  

 

Task 

Tell the interview panel what you decided to do.

I thought about how I might be able to help.

 

Action

Describe what you actually did. 

I gave my colleague examples of how I improved my own performance.

 

Result

Tell the interview panel what happened as a result of your actions.

His/her performance improved dramatically.


If you practice answering common interview questions by using the STAR technique, you will have a good support frame available for your interview.

NZIC helped me in my way to get a Visa and job search. They were always available to talk to and were open to all sorts of questions. No matter how random they were. Very friendly staff. And even when they had changes in employee and advisors, they always stayed professional and up to date. I can only say good things and recommend them highly.

“In contrast to another Immigration consultancy that we contacted, your company offered a free webinar and an assessment, warm, approachable staff that communicates openly with potential customers. I found your website and it was very detailed and informative. I understand that your company is a fee for services provider, but that has not been conveyed as a prerequisite during the decision making process.”

At first, Maj kindly explained the whole process and what to expect. I was coached and introduced to New Zealand job market by their Job Search team, and getting assistance until I got a job in the country. The Visa team would also follow me up on my pending documents, so I never felt left out. Truly recommended for those seeking out an option to live in New Zealand. Big thanks from me and my whole family for things NZIC did for us..!

Very pleased and satisfied with the service we received from NZIC. They assisted me and my family from start to finish. Always willing to assist, and communicated our progress every step of the way. With their assistance we managed to obtain permanent resident visa status.
