includes where and when you were working (company, how old/what year in school),and maybe a bit of info on the problem you faced.The Task blends slightly with the Situation, and is just as simple. This is somethingalong the lines of "I was assigned to do x." Plain and simple, it may be the moststraight forward part of your response. Keep in mind that it also sets up the measuringstick for your results, so be sure that it is actually what you were assigned to do!The Actions portion of your response should be where the meat of your answer is.You need to take this opportunity to say "I performed xyz analysis and used abc toolsto do so." or "I led the group by doing abc." You also need to consider howtechnically savvy your interviewer is. If she/he is an engineer, then you can feel freeto go into a few (but not too many!) details about what you did. If you get an HR person doing the interview, don't even try to go into details, it probably won't help!The Results should also be very easy, but is without question the most important partof your response. As interviewers and companies are looking for candidates who have been extremely effective in their past jobs and experiences, this is where they look todetermine if you are someone they want to hire. Use this opportunity to highlight your results, and their impact on the company: awards, cost savings, sales made, production improvement, etc. Don't short change yourself on this section, its criticalthat you highlight every positive impact that you made!I also must warn you not to exaggerate or lie about your accomplishments! Thisdoesn't ever help anyone in the process, especially if a company does their homework by calling your provided references to ask about you!Finally, your response should take approximately 3-5 minutes total. Any longer, andyou've lost the attention of your interviewer. Any shorter, and you probably haven'tgotten your message across either.A good interviewer will also probe you with questions like "Tell me more about that"or will guide you along with "So what was the result of that?" All I can say is don'trely on them to help you along. Ace it the first time through!Here is an example of one of my responses all put together. See if you can pick outeach section. I used this response typically for a question along the lines of "Tell meabout a time you faced a difficult technical challenge.""While working at NASA, Kennedy Space Center, I was in an organization that wasdoing preliminary design work for the Launch Pad systems of new rockets we areusing to go to the Moon and Mars. We received Flight Vehicle Commodity Loadingrequirements from Johnson Space Center and Marshall Space Center, and thendesigned the Launch Pad accordingly.""My boss had originally given an assignment to a Contractor and was not happy withtheir progress.
