Nail behaviour-based interviews
BEHAVIOUR-BASED interviewing is becoming more common. It s based on the premise that a
’ candidate s past performance is the best predictor
’ of his or her future performance.
For this type of interview you need to be prepared to provide detailed responses including specific examples of your work experiences.
The best way to prepare for this is to think of examples where you have successfully used the skills you ve acquired.
Take the time to compile a list of responses to both these and the more traditional type of questions, itemising your skills, values and interests as well as your strengths and weaknesses. Emphasise what you can do to benefit the company rather than just what you are interested in.
Also prepare a list of questions to ask the interviewer. Remember, you are also interviewing the employer to assess whether the company and the job are a good fit for you. About.com
