Please complete the following required steps in order to pass your QUIC interview
You can choose your job description here. At the beginning of your QUIC interview, you will tell your interviewer which job description you have chosen. Make sure you study the overview, duties and responsibilities, list of qualifications, and then be prepared to explain why you are qualified for that particular position.
In your QUIC interview, you will be expected to demonstrate knowledge of the company you’ve signed up for and explain how you fit with the company. Research the company by visiting the company’s website and explore their products, services, values, career opportunities, goals, corporate structure, press releases, annual report, and investor information.

Use the STARt method to answer this question.
