The following statement will guide you about my achievements and will help you to analyze the selection criteria of the post. The following skills, abilities, knowledge and qualifications will help you to identify my potential in respect to the desired job position in your company. The different selection criteria are listed below along with the instance which proves the presence of the criteria within my works. I have focused on the use of the simple STAR model for the structuring of the selection criteria. The model helps to identify the situation, outlines the task performed in the situation, describes the action taken by me in the situation and explains the result or the impact of the action.

Situation:  In my high school while pursuing the graduate degree I was involved in a research project for conducting primary research on a new product launch. The research project was divided into two parts. The first part involved collection of data from the consumers about their perceptions of the new product and the second part involved compilation of the data and using of various statistical tools in order to  analyze the data and prepare a hand written report of the same.

Additional Requirements

Task: The co coordinator of the project had divided the class into different teams and the teams were assigned various parts of the project. This was done in order to facilitate quick completion of the project work. My team was assigned to complete the final stage work of preparation of the hand written project report.

Action: The team discussed the process of doing the report in a meeting where it was decided that the report will be divided section wise in between various team members. My role was to co ordinate the works of the other team members. I was supposed to collect the report portions from the various team members and combine them together and report for the overall progress of the same. We agreed upon a schedule for the same and all reports were forwarded to me within the stipulated timeline. Finally I assembled and combined all the arts of the report efficiently and prepared the final project. However after the preparation of the final project I forwarded the same report to all the other team members for their consent or any further suggestions. Finally with the consent of all members I was able to deliver the final project.

Result: The result was positive as we secured a high distinction and the project was completed on time and our work was appreciated by the teachers and other team members.

Situation: I was appointed as a waitress in Arrow Game in Melaka, Malaysia

Task: My task was to manage a group of foreign delegates along with my team members

Action: Many of my team members lacked appropriate communication skills hence I spoke to my team members and trained them to understand non verbal communicative signs in order to cater to the basic needs of the delegates (Southwood, 2012).

Result: The final result was positive and the delegates were impressed with our services and we were given a token of appreciation by the manager of the hotel.

Situation: While working as a sales assistant in Tims Style Melaka, Malaysia I faced a grave situation where my junior had sold a wrong item to the customer and the customer companied to the company executive about the same.

Task: The major problem was that my junior had sold a wrong item to the customers. This created a job issue for my junior and also an accountability issue for me.

Action: I was given the responsibility to take a decision in this matter. I was supposed to inform the senior level management about whether it was the fault of the junior assistant or it was a fault within the clause. My decision would make a negative impact on the career of the junior assistant who was new in the company and was not highly knowledgeable about products.

Result: The decision I took was beneficial for both the parties. I informed the senior managers that the junior was not totally knowledgeable about the products and the lack of guidance by any higher authority made me make this mistake. Further I spoke with the client and assured him that product had certain other benefits which the client can avail and using my good convincing skills I convinced the customer.


Situation: While working in Arrow game I was faced with a situation of customer service interaction with one of the customers who visited the hotel. The customer was very rude and complaining in nature and since I was in charge of serving drinks to the customers hence I had to encounter her negative behavior within the company premises.

Task: In this situation a customer complained about an insect in her drink and she was very upset about the situation. On enquiry it was found that there was no evidence of any inset in the drink. However the customer was aggressive and was not ready to accept any views of the hotel staffs.

Action: Being the front office executive I had to console the customer and also sooth the customer in order to maintain the goodwill of the hotel in the eyes of the other customers present there. Hence I took her to a different room personally spoke with her for minutes and understood the fact that she was out of money and hence created the drama so that the cost of the drink could be foregone. Empathizing with her situation I offered her a complementary drink and she also apologized to the hotel staffs about the accusation and the rude behavior she expressed.

Result: The problem was solved effectively and she was pleased at the customer services provided in the hotel. Moreover she visited the hotel again with her friends and paid an extra amount for the previous days drink confirming that she likes paying visits to this hotel.

Situation:  While pursuing my legal course in the field of social science and legal issues I participated in a legal mooting event. A legal moot is a one act legal play which is conducted by the legal students. The mooting is a form of legal court case where a court case role play is conducted in order to give the law students a practical experience in the following field.

Task: I was given the part of the lawyer and was bestowed upon by a case which was a very complex social case on a rising social issue. However I was not given any case references or any previous case links in this matter. Hence I had to conduct my own research over the case issues and form a draft which I would have to execute in the moot court case event. Since this was a part of my semester activity hence I had to be very careful in conducting the case in a relevant manner so that my semester marks would not be hampered.

Action: I made a thorough research of the academic journals and the relevant case laws in order to gain suggestions about the case.  For further investigations I explored the relevant cases or the moot cases which are similar to my case study. I gained references from academic journals and academic law books in order get knowledge about the whole case study. I also contacted my seniors in order to acquire their advice on how to conduct the moot case study and what relevant points should I include in order to make my case stronger.

Job Location

Result: Finally on the day of the moot court case, I was able to make my case stronger in comparison to the opposition lawyer. The facts collected by me helped me to defend my case at every turning point of the case. The judge and the concerned professors were impressed by my through research on the case topic and my production of the relevant laws, sections and subsections. I won my case due to my excess efforts and highly developed analytical skills. I was able to establish the fact that I have very good research skills. These highly effective research skills helped me to secure a high grade in the semester examinations.

Situation: I was given the job to revive lost data base from the DBMS system in the computer while working as a HR. The data was every important and relevant because they were the customer and client information which were stored within the system without any manual backup.

Task: The breakdown of the technology had resulted in the loss of client case data in the DBMS system. The company had given me the responsibility to revive or create new data overnight for all the clients in order to facilitate the progress or the cases (Brandon, 2013). 

Action: Since the time of my joining I had kept e record of the client data in my own personal computer. Hence I had the opportunity of accessing the lost data. However it was a challenging to convert the data and record the whole data within the DBMS overnight.  Nevertheless, I took the opportunity to revive the data which I had recorded by taking the data out from my own personal computer and creating the data list in the DBMS overnight. I used my fast typing speed and high technical and computer knowledge in order to record the data in a super speedy manner.

Result: This made a positive and a good experience about my technical skills in my office. I was able to create a new data base overnight and everyone in the office appreciated about my hard work, dedication, typing speed and moreover my effective computer and technical knowledge.

Situation: While pursuing diploma in business administration, I was required to participate in a business fair for the social welfare purposes. This fair was organized for the contribution of fund for social causes. The plan of the fair was to establish various stalls with usable products and food products to the customers and the fund collected from the same would be forwarded to the social child care organizations.

Task: My task was to organize the marketing and promotional activities directed towards the promotion of the products for sell. The major part of my task was to organize the whole event and plan for the appropriate marketing strategies for the promotion of the products so as to increase the sale of the products and fetch a good revenue amount in order to forward a huge amount to the social organizations.

Action: I set up a strategic plan for the same. I prepared a marketing proposal including the promotional strategies and the appropriate financial fund and expenses that the marketing strategies and promotional strategies are expected to incur. Then I showed my proposal to the working committee of the college who was in charge of the whole event. The committee considered my proposal and we decided to implement the marketing campaign program. Finally I contacted different sponsors who would be able to sponsor the whole event and the different stalls. I also contacted the different concerned persons like the people who are dealing in designing hoardings, online promotions and also the print shops for the printing of the pamphlets. I arranged and made a blueprint for the construction of the different sores within the campus. The stores were allocated to the different students and I selected the tem leaders from among the various team members in each stall. Finally the event started and it continued for around 3days.

Result: The end result was a huge success of the event. Majority of the products were sold and huge amount of fund was collected for the funding purpose of the social organizations. The committee informed me that as a result of my marketing campaign I was able to attract more that the expected number of customers.
