The STAR model for demonstrating skills
Job Seeker Coach
Cover Letter, Job Application, Job Selection Criteria
A good job application will demonstrate how you have the required skills to do the advertised job. A simple model you can use in your cover letter or in response to selection criteria is called the STAR model:
Situation – What was your involvement?
Task – What was the task you were required to do?
Action – What did you do and how did you do it?
Result – What was the result? How was it received?
In summary, you must set the scene, explain your action and give the result.
