S.A.R. Technique What is the S.A.R. technique and how can I use it to communicate my skills effectively? Understand how to reframe your work experiences into a set of results that you have accomplished. Employers will react more favorably towards results driven statements and skills. These achievements will prove your abilities to a future employer. Reflect on 2-4 work experiences or accomplishments that have been pivotal in your career. Try to write them from the S.A.R. or results oriented perspective. This process of redefining your experiences can help you gain better insight into what you have to offer. Your set of S.A.Rs can be used in a resume, cover letter, interview and when networking. S.A.R. Technique Description: 1. Situation Identify a situation, problem or opportunity you experienced in the workplace that was a defining moment in your career. This situation could be positive or negative, but should reflect on a learning opportunity or career growth for you. 2. Action Identify the action that you took to correct this situation or problem, or the action you initiated to take advantage of the opportunity. 3.
