4.1 Introduction

So far you have studied the four elements of the STAR Technique. You have learned about the 10 most sought-after professional skills and identified behaviours that demonstrate them, including personal, interpersonal, communication and thinking skills.

The next step is to apply this knowledge to your own context and create a set of STAR Stories. The stories will illustrate your own skills in relation to the ten most in-demand professional skills required in the workplace and higher education.

By the end of this section, you will be able to:

  • Apply STAR techniques to your own experiences.
  • Create your own Star Stories using a tool designed to guide you through the process.
  • Build a personal STAR story file that you can use to illustrate your skill.
