Imagine you are looking for a job and seeing the perfect vacancy. You are the right person for the position, and immediately send your extensive resume to the company. Now it begins, the questions arise about how to prepare yourself. We have the answers to these question marks. The STAR Method.
As financial controller, I had one more week to finish the year-end closing of the company, but in addition, I also had to prepare the monthly report for the past month for the meeting with the CFO.
My job was to ensure I had all the financial information from the right people to prepare the year-end and month-end reports and ensure they were ready in time for the meeting with the CFO.
I created a schedule to ensure I had all the information I needed for the reports on Monday. I used the other days to make calculations and write the report. I moved the meeting with the CFO the following week to the end of the day, so I had time that day to finalise the reports.
The result was that I finished both reports on time and could present them to the CFO.
