Your resume and cover letter got you an interview. Congratulations! Now it’s time to develop a strategy for answering the questions you’ll be asked.

You might be thinking, “Why do I need a strategy to answer questions?”  Because the more prepared you are going into an interview, the less likely you are to be caught off guard or stray off topic. We’ve all been there. You’re nervous and excited about this opportunity, so when answering a question you start to ramble and then end up way off track from your original point.

Brought to you in partnership with the North Star STEM Alliance, this workshop will show you how to use the STAR Method to give your answers structure, relevance and impact so you can impress interviewers and secure the internship of your dreams.

Everything you need to follow along with this workshop can be found here, including:

  • The STAR Method Explained -A run down of what the STAR Method is and how you can use it
  • STAR Method examples
  • What to research before an interview
  • Additional STAR Method and interviewing resources from The Muse
  • And the slides and transcript from this presentation

This workshop was recorded live on Wednesday April 6, 2022. The recording has been edited for brevity and clarity.
