The CAR Strategy can help you organise your thinking about behavioural questions before you even hear them! Practice using this strategy with a friend. 1) Give your friend a list of questions. 2) You friend asks you the questions. 3) You use the CAR Strategy to organise your answers. It may also help to write them down on a piece of paper. The infographic below illustrates the CAR Strategy and you may download the illustration and share it if you like!
Get ready to run through your first interview with this helpful worksheet! Many first interviews are similar so the questions asked will also be similar because it is kind of a “get to know you” session. Please use this free worksheet to prepare your answers. On some of the questions you are directed to use the CAR strategy in which you describe a specific example using Challenge-Strategy-Result as the structure for your answer.
