Frequently asked questions
STAR is an acronym that stands for situation, task, action, and result, and is a well-known formula for candidates to follow when answering interview questions. This helps ensure answers are structured and well thought out. Often used in competency-style interviews, the STAR method is best suited for ‘Explain a time when…’ or ‘Talk about how you have…’ questions.
The candidate should first explain the ‘situation’, setting the scene and giving context, then follow up with the ‘task’ they were responsible for within the situation. Then explain what ‘action/s’ they took, describing their thought process and any challenges they may have faced. Finally, they should explain the ‘result’ of their actions and what was achieved. The best endings will have a quantifiable impact on the organisation, such as making a large sale worth X amount of money.
One of the most important things not to do when interviewing a candidate is go into the interview unprepared. Most candidates will come well-prepared for their interview, and you should do the same, otherwise you may send the message that you are uninterested and disorganised, giving them a negative view of your employer brand. You should also be careful not to ask any discriminatory or inappropriate questions such as their age or religious affiliations.
Remember, as the interviewer, the onus is on you to ensure you interview correctly to not only get the best out of the interviewee, but to give a good impression of yourself and the business and make the right hiring decision.
There is no set limit on how many questions you should ask the interviewee, but according to our research of 2,000 hiring managers, most (82%) ask between five and 15 questions. This should give you enough information to make an informed choice, but not overwhelm the candidate with an unnecessary long interview process.
The 80/20 rule of interviewing suggests the interviewee should be talking 80% of the time, and the interviewer should spend 20% of the time asking the questions, discussing their answers, and answering the candidate’s questions. Some managers find it difficult to strike the right balance of talking and listening, so by following this rule, you can ensure you get the most out of the interview.
