5 Smoking Hot Tips to Passing Behavioral Interviews
If you have a behavioral interview coming up, well then, you are in the right place. Because today, I am going to help you pass it and here's how. I'm going to cover with you my 5 best tips and Strategies for Passing Behavioral Interviews. What is a behavioral interview? It sounds like someone is getting into your head and they're testing your behavior. Well, in a way they kind of are. You see, employers use behavioral interviews to determine your core competencies. So, what the heck our core competencies? Core competencies are the things that you are really good at doing and these are the things that help you do your job. So, employers are going to test you on your core competencies. They're going to test you to make sure that you know how to do the job and they're going to do that by asking you a series of questions that are going to force you to give them examples of how you have done your job or how you would do your job; that's what they are and that's why they use them. They are very powerful and they help employers weed out the weak candidates and focus in on finding only the strong candidates; the ones who know how to do the job. Make sense; right? If you were an employer; if you were interviewing candidates, wouldn't you want to do the same thing? I thought so. So, on any job interview, whether it's a behavioral job interview or not, you can expect at least 40% of the questions to be of the behavioral type; where they dig in deep and they test your core competencies. It might be a little bit more, it might be a little less. Sometimes, I've heard of interviews being 100% behavioral, but I've never actually seen one.
