STAR Stories:

Accomplishments are an important foundation for communicating what you have done, why you fit, and what you offer an organization.

  • Accomplishments indicate specifically what you have achieved during your career.
  • Accomplishments are used throughout the career development process.
  • In thinking about which accomplishments to highlight, consider what you want to do in addition to what you have done.

The “STAR Story” is a powerful tool in outlining your key successes-accomplishments-achievements.

Informational Meetings:

The information meeting (sometimes called “informational interview”) serves as a valuable job-hunting tool to research careers or areas you’d like to explore, find out what companies are hiring, what jobs are available, what skills those jobs require, and more. Use of this approach might be the best way to find a position you really like, because the dynamics are entirely different from those of a job interview.
