Three Techniques to Impress Your Interviewer


Hello, future interview superstars! Let's dive into three beneficial techniques to help you ace those interview questions with confidence and finesse.

1. The PAWS Technique

First impressions count, and often, the first question is: "Tell us a little about yourself." It's surprisingly tricky, isn't it? Here's where the 'PAWS' technique comes in handy.

'P' stands for Profile. Start with a captivating sentence about your interest in teaching or a quick intro about yourself.

'A' is for Academic. Mention your qualifications and any activities relevant to the job you're vying for.

'W' stands for Work. Here's your chance to showcase your past experiences, achievements, and even voluntary work. Make it impressive!

Finally, 'S' is for Strengths. Use descriptive vocabulary to convey your strengths, like "I consider myself to be curious and creative with a keen focus on teaching," then zip it up. No rambling!

2. Storytelling

Our second technique is all about spinning a yarn. Why stories? Because they provide concrete evidence of your skills and experience. Remember, stories beat conditional sentences any day!

3. The STAR Technique

The third technique is the STAR (Situation, Task, Action, and Result) method. This is where you get to share actual experiences.

Let's say you're asked if you're a good team player. This is your 'Situation'. The 'Task' could be something like your time working in learning support, where you collaborated closely with the 5th and 6th class teachers.

For the 'Action' and 'Result', you can use verbs like "I communicated, I created, I elaborated, I responded," and then share the outcome. Keep your result concise - 14 words or less is perfect. An example could be, "As a result, I noticed that the students received excellent education, communication improved, and the children achieved well," then zip it up.
