How to Complete a Competency Based Application Form Using STAR Technique

“Tell me about a time when…”

June 27, 2023
Graduate School, TR2
11:00 - 13:00

Competency based questions are commonly used in application forms and interview processes for graduate jobs. Although they often seem straight forward, these types of questions can often throw you if you are not well prepared. This online presentation will provide you with examples of competency-based questions and give you the opportunity to practise your technique with your peers.

Before the workshop, you may find it helpful to think of real-life examples of when you have used skills such as teamwork and communication skills. Please have a pen and paper to hand for this part of the workshop.
