When you have limited space to communicate the strengths of your MBA candidacy and the details of your achievements, using the STAR method to organize your thoughts can be the difference between a powerful resume, essay or interview response and one that misses the mark.
STAR stands for Situation, Task, Action, and Result, and if you follow this structure when telling a story or explaining an accomplishment, it will help you get straight to the point and to the information that matters most to the admissions committee.
This episode gives examples of what you should cover for each part of a STAR response, and also gives examples of such responses.
