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 answer. One way to easily share an example of your ability to problem-solve is using 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.
