X is for… eXample

ato z of interview skills

X is for… give me an EXAMPLE…

These ‘example’ questions are quite frequently also behavioural questions and should be answered using the STAR method. However, you might also be asked more of a skilled-based question. You should have an example to back up all of your skills and experience. A technique I find useful when preparing a CV that is tailored to a job description is to also note an example at the same time.

Your Career Journal should be FULL of examples ready to answer any question you may get at interview.

Using your career journal will help you find inspiration for Interview Questions and help you prepare, practice and review your answers. This can be a great technique which is why I have chosen to use the A to Z of Interview Questions Posts as Journal Prompts. If you don’t already have a career journal this is the perfect excuse to get started.

One thought on “X is for… eXample

  1. My hubby’s career journal is a series of emails he has CC’d to himself, proof of what’s been accomplished. For me, I keep an actual journal where I record my accomplishments at the end of each day. (I might go insane otherwise. We have to see somehow we’re making progress, eh?) Great advice!
