Distinguishing Yourself from Other Applicants using the STAR Method

The STAR method, which stands for Situation, Task, Action, Results best prepares applicants for getting the context of your job across to people who hire. MyCareer@VA has a page explaining the STAR method to help you get your next job. If you simply list your job duties, you may leave the employer wondering: How good were they at their job? How quickly did they work? Were they saving the company money or making money for the company?

Remember, you should be as detailed as possible when explaining your job duties on your resume. It can mean employing or another day looking.
