Write your best accomplishments in the CCAR format!
The CCAR Accomplishment story-telling format is a popular accomplishment and interview story model recommended by Office of Personnel Management (OPM) and Human Resources Specialists in government. Tell your story with each step of the way!
The CCAR Model
Context – title of your job or role you are playing in this example; the context sets the stage for your story.
Challenge – what was the challenge of this example or project? Why is this a good example for this particular KSA?
Action – what were your specific actions in this case? How do they show your mastery of this specific KSA?
Results – what happened? Again, how does this relate to the specific KSA?
Use this builder to help you create an outline for your KSA stories. Then, you can edit your KSA to make it read in an interesting and fluid way.
