Behavior Based Interview Questions - Tip

Behavioral based interviewing is interviewing based on discovering how the interviewee acted in specific employment-related situations. The logic is that how you behaved in the past will predict how you will behave in the future i.e. past performance predicts future performance.

Traditional Interview vs. Behavioral Interview

In a behavioral interview, an employer has decided what skills are needed in the person they hire and will ask questions to find out if the candidate has those skills. Instead of asking how you would behave, they will ask how you did behave. The interviewer will want to know how you handled a situation, instead of what you might do in the future.

Questions in a Behavioral Interview

Behavioral interview questions will be more pointed, more probing and more specific than traditional interview questions:

Give an example of an occasion when you used logic to solve a problem.Give an example of a goal you reached and tell me how you achieved it.Describe a decision you made that was unpopular and how you handled implementing it.Have you gone above and beyond the call of duty? If so, how?What do you do when your schedule is interrupted? Give an example of how you handle it.Have you had to convince a team to work on a project they weren't thrilled about? How did you do it?Have you handled a difficult situation with a co-worker? How?Tell me about how you worked effectively under pressure.

Overworked. Undervalued. Now What?

You’re working your fingers to the bone – extra hours, extra projects, extra everything. And yet no extra appreciation is coming back your way. No one seems to notice your hard work. What to do?

No matter why or how you found yourself in this situation, you can turn it around. It’s time to take back control.

As Roxanne Peplow of Computer Systems Institute notes, “You cannot seek praise from others—it has to come from within.” Rather than waiting to be recognized and praised by others, choose to be proud of your accomplishments in their own right. Give yourself the credit you deserve. Shed light on your achievements when appropriate. And look for ways to acknowledge the efforts of others who contribute to your success — those on your team.

7 Steps developing and using your own "Personal Balanced Scorecard" (PBSC) | Career Development, Personal Branding & Job Hunting | Scoop.it

Why We Need a Personal Balanced Scorecard

Life coaches, executive coaches and HR consultants the world over are making the point that very often our approach to success is not balanced. Often we focus on one area (e.g. career or wealth) and just as we find we begin to achieve success in that area, we find perhaps in doing so we may have neglected other important areas of our life (e.g. health, relationships, spirituality, etc). This has been addressed through the notion of “work-life balance,” which focuses on achieving a balance between two major areas of our lives: work and the rest of our lives.

Creating a Personal Balanced Scorecard

Dimensions of the Balanced Scorecard

The dimensions that the standard Balanced Scorecard incorporates include the following:

The customer relationship dimension – how do our customers see us?The financial dimension – how do our owners see us?The business process dimension – how effective and efficient are our business processes?The learning and innovation dimension – how well do we generate and adopt new knowledge?

Dimensions on the Personal Balanced Scorecard

Internal – your physical and mental state. How can you control these to create value for yourself and others? How can you feel good in your own skin – at work as well as in your spare time?External – your relations with your spouse, children, friends, employers, colleagues and others. How do they see you?Knowledge and learning – your skills and learning ability. How do you learn, and how can you enable yourself to be successful now and in the future?Financial – financial stability. To what degree are you able to fulfil your financial needs?

These four elements should form the basis of your personal mission, vision and how you define your key role in situations. This will, of course, spill over into the ambitions that inspire your personal objectives, give rise to certain performance targets and are the yardstick by which you measure yourself and guide actions for daily improvement.
