Nail be­hav­iour-based in­ter­views

Sunday World - - World Of Jobs -

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.
