How to Answer the "What Are Your Qualifications, Abilities, and Strong Points" Interview Question

Use the STAR Method

Employers will find many different ways to appraise your qualifications for a job, and one way they might go about this is by asking you about what qualifications, abilities and strong points you have that will help you most succeed in the job.


There's nothing worse than being stumped for an answer when you're put on the spot. You should be prepared to share the qualifications you have that will enable you to do well if you are hired and some examples for why they are important to the job for which you are interviewing. A great solution is giving a STAR answer. The STAR approach is an interview technique that helps you keep your answers on the right track.


STAR stands for Situation, Task, Action, Result:


Situation - You start by explaining a situation which required you to solve a problem, use a skill, or come up with a new idea.


Task - Next, you explain the action that your job requires in such a situation.


Action - After, you describe the action that you took. If it’s different than the required task, you should also explain why you chose a different path.


Result - What happened in the end? How did the situation play out once you acted? It’s best here to illustrate successes with numbers. Numbers help reinforce the impact that your action had.

Week 6-12: 9:30am – Sun, Mon, Wed and Sat, 2:30pm & 6:00pm to 11:00pm (Tues, Thurs and Fri off)

If you’re self-motivated, disciplined and resourceful, our at-home role may be perfect for you. As a Customer Service Representative, or as we like to say, Customer ServiceSpecialist, you’ll be a problem-solver, salesperson, troubleshooter, billing expert and more – all while working remotely from the convenience of your home office within commuting distance of the Elgin Call Center. And you’ll also be a hero when you solve our customers’ challenges.

  • Listen carefully to each customer with patience and courtesy.
  • Use your troubleshooting and problem-solving skills to come up with solutions.
  • Use your great communication skills to resolve customer’s device, billing and serviceconcerns.
  • Excite customers about how new solutions can positively impact their lives.
  • Position value-added solutions to customers and close sales.
  • Build customer relationships – earn their loyalty and trust by being polite and helpful.

What we’re looking for...

You are positive and professional with a focus on solving problems and doing whatever it takes to make a difference to every customer every time. You relate well to all kinds of people, listen attentively, and can hone in on the most important issues. You explain things easily, in ways that people can understand. You are tech-savvy and know how to use that knowledge to find solutions while focusing on one customer at a time.

You’ll need to have:

  • one or more years of relevant work experience.
  • The ability to report to the Elgin call center within 90 minutes of notice if required by the business during one of your scheduled shifts.
  • Flexibility to work split shifts, evenings, weekends and holidays.

At-home resources you need to have which meet the following requirements:

  • Internet service with a direct connection to a cable or fiber modem and capable of at least 6 Mbps download and 3 Mbps upload.
  • Dedicated quiet, private workspace with a chair and desk.

Even better if you have:

  • Customer service experience, of course, and if you’ve handled billing and equipment questions, that’s a big plus.
  • Experience solving customer’s problems in a work-from-home environment.
  • Demonstrated ability to self-manage in a remote work environment including setup of company-provided computer equipment and ongoing proactive, skilled and effective management of your home Internet network and connections.
  • Demonstrated self-discipline, flexibility, time management, resourcefulness and ability to work collaboratively with leaders and team, all from a remote work environment.
