Instruction on how to use STAR
We strongly recommend using STAR to help you structure your statements. It will also help you to break down the writing of a 250 word example into four manageable chunks. Most of your 250 words need to go on the A and the R parts of your example, as this is where most sift points will be available.

• This sets up your example for the sifter and provides the context for the actions you are going to describe.
• It can include your job role, the circumstances, the resources available, the context, and your responsibilities.
• It needs to be fairly short, but does need to allow the sifter to assess the complexity of the task, your role and responsibilities, resources you had available and any challenges you faced.

• This is where you describe the task you needed to do to meet the objectives.

• This is where you will describe what you actually did in response to the situation and task.
• This is the most important part, as it is where most of sift points are awarded.
• Most of your 250 words should be used here.

• At the end of the statement you will need to explain what the outcome of your actions was and why they were successful. If it wasn’t successful as it could have been you can explain what lessons you learned and what you could have done to make it more so.
• Replacing passive verbs and sentences with active ones
• The statement needs to be about you and what you did therefore you should include lots of “I” statements and less we did this, the team did that etc.
• Read through your statement, amending anything that talks about what anyone else did.
• You also need to replace any passive verbs or sentences with active ones. Active verbs provide additional impact and include words like planned, developed, researched, recommended etc
