💎The STAR technique is a great tool to stand out in your next job interview. Don’t miss this recruiter’s insight into how to utilize this method! Watch the video to the end for advice on how to best prepare for an interview with Sun Life.
📼Have the STAR technique tool handy when preparing for your interview with Sun Life. “The best advice that I can give a candidate is preparation. And one of the best techniques to use to prepare for your interview with us is utilizing the STAR technique” says Winde Farinacci, Senior Talent Acquisition Consultant at Sun Life.
📼What is the STAR technique and how to use it in a job interview? The STAR technique is the method you can use to tell the story of a problem that you've overcome while working either on a project or trying to find a solution to an issue during your work. It also demonstrates to the person interviewing you how you're able to clearly communicate the story behind that issue or problem.
📼Have the STAR technique at hand during your whole interview process with Sun Life. And what exactly are the stages in that process? Initially, your application is reviewed by a talent acquisition consultant at Sun Life. From there, if your experience aligns with the role, they will invite you to have an initial interview. Up next, if there's still a mutual interest, the company will then present you to a hiring leader, who may invite you to a final stage, which is either a peer interview or a meeting with the director of the business unit for the position that you're applying for. At each stage, Sun Life will be assessing your interest level in the opportunity, as well as how much research you've done about the company.
Moving Forward From The STAR Technique: Virtual Interview Tips
At Sun Life, most interviews will be conducted via a virtual environment, so some of Winde’s tips are to prepare, dress professionally, have good lighting, have a good audio and internet connection, and ensure that you're free of any distractions. Last, but not least: show enthusiasm and be your great self! Finally, thank the interviewers for their time and insight on the role and the opportunity.

💎 Are you transitioning back to work after more than 2 years? Don’t panic, you are not alone! Watch the video to the end to find out how to make your career dream come true!
📼 Transitioning back to work can be difficult if you have been out of the corporate world for a long time. Claudia Heinrich-Barna, Electrical Engineer at Raytheon Technologies, shares her experience with you to help you make your journey back to the working world a smooth one.
📼 Transitioning Back To Work Tip #1: Research the companies and find out if they have a return back-to-work program. In Claudia's case, this was the Re-Empower Program at Raytheon. This program was very well structured. She very quickly learned that there were others just like her and with the same concerns and the same insecurities after having been out of the work for so long. Remember: you're not alone. There are many people out there that are returning to work, just like you! Find these back-to-work programs, they're out there! They're becoming more and more popular, and they're gaining momentum. And the companies are realizing that this is one talent pool that they have not exhausted yet.
📼 Transitioning Back To Work Tip #2: Find a good mentor and don't be afraid to ask for help. Claudia was very lucky in that respect. The mentor that was assigned to her was very knowledgeable, very patient, very kind, very complimentary, uplifting, and non-judgmental. He was always available to her. And she could ask him questions anytime. He made her feel very comfortable and created a wonderful environment for her to learn. However, if you are not assigned a mentor, you can find people that will help you. There are always people out there that love to teach. Don't be afraid to ask for help! There are a lot of people out there that were in your shoes once and would love to help you along.
Transitioning Back To Work - Tip #3: Consistency And Education
Claudia’s advice is to be consistent, follow up, and use continued education. Sometimes, the job or the program you're applying for may not be available at the moment. What you can do is follow up every month or so, and be consistent in what you want to do. This will tell the HR team that you are serious about getting a job with their company. Claudia also highly recommends taking continued education classes. If you have been out of the workforce for several years, take a class with all the Microsoft tools like PowerPoint, Excel, and Outlook. This will enable you, once you get the job, to concentrate on your field of expertise. You will not have to waste time learning these tools that you most likely will be using daily. Take some classes in your profession as well. In Claudia's case, she took several programming classes, which made it so much easier for her to return to her career.
