RELAX: The STAR technique can be a useful technique to apply to those tricky job interview questions. Nikki encourages her clients to use the STAR technique when answering those tricky interview questions. Situation: a brief description of the situation. Task: what you were required to do. Action: explain the actions that took place. Result: describe the end result. What happened? “It’s storytelling, while providing the prospective employer with a concrete example. It also demonstrates key employability skills such as teamwork, communication, planning and organisation, initiative, and problem solving,” Nikki said. “Rehearse your responses. That way, you won’t have the urge to waffle on.” PREPARE: Nikki Szabo of Feeniks – Career Guidance, Coaching and Training Services. Picture by Aaron Brown. The stakes are high at a job interview, so it’s little wonder that some applicants become flustered under the pressure. Nikki Szabo, the owner of Feeniks – Career Guidance, Coaching and Training Services, said the key to keeping it all together was preparation. “Interviews make us nervous because of the pressure we feel to impress,” Nikki said. “We obviously want the job, otherwise we wouldn’t have applied for it, so that adds pressure to the situation.” Nikki recommends that applicants do a practice run before they face the music. “Allow yourself plenty of time to get there. Do a practice run so that you know exactly where you’re going, where to park, or whether public transport can drop you off. “I have been in the employer’s seat, and I can tell you that there really is no excuse for being late.” Nikki urges her clients to allow themselves time to sit down, relax and perhaps grab a coffee. “Take this time to review your resume and reflect on the responses that you are going to give. And don’t forget to breathe...” Nikki said that extra preparation time would come in handy, and help you to consider your answers to those “can you give me an example of a time when...?” and “what would you do in this situation?” questions. at your audition Feeniks offers interview coaching as one of its services.
