Sharing a story is a great way to give the interview some depth of a particular skill you may have. Instead of just saying I can do “X”, prepare a story that incorporates the skill you are highlighting.
Work on 2 – 3 monologue style stories. They should be thorough but short and to the point. They should show that you can solve problems, multi-task and work well with others.
The Mayo Clinic recommends the SHARE method:
S – Describe a specific Situation
H – Identify Hinderances or challenges
A – Detail the Action you took
R – Discuss the Results or outcomes
E – Evaluate and summarize what you learned
