16 During the Interview: STAR Situation: Last semester, I had two group projects due in the same week for my Product Development and Urban Food Security course. I was taking a full course load, and working and volunteering over 15 hours a week. Task: To meet all of my project deadlines and fulfill my commitments, I needed to create a schedule to help organize and prioritize my tasks. Action: Using Google calendar, I blocked off the time that I would be working or volunteering, and planned out the weeks leading up to my two class project deadlines. Since these were group projects, I also had to consider the schedules of my classmates to ensure that the goals I had set were realistic for my team. Each week, I would review my plan and make adjustments to my schedule to accommodate arising issues. Result: My team and I submitted our projects in on time and earned an A and A+ grade. I also attended all of my work and volunteer shifts.
