Using the STAR format, write a brief, but compelling answer to each of the 7 questions below. Remember to be concise with your answers but, provide sufficient details to illustrate your point. Use examples from work, when possible. However, you may also use examples from school or your personal life as a reference point if needed. Write your responses in complete sentences.
