Q. When have you worked as part of a team to complete a difficult task?
The following sample response utilizes the STAR METHOD for answering competency-based or bahvioural interview questions:
SITUATION – In my previous job I volunteered to work with 5 other members to complete a difficult project that had fallen by the wayside due to a contractor going out of business.
TASK – The task required all 5 of us to work closely together to integrate a new software system with the client’s website. So, we only had four days to complete the task in accordance with the specification and the client’s requirements. Therefore, time was of the essence and we needed to work hard to get everything done to a professional standard.
