Thank you for sharing this article!

 

The difference between situational interview questions ("what would you do."   and  Behavioral interview questions ("Describe a time when....and What did you ...)

 

In behavioral interview questions we are seeking specific examples of how you responded.  How you responded or behaved in the past are important indicators of how you will behave and respond in the future.  

 

Behavioral interview questions may be tied to a company value or leadership competency.  My tip on how to prepare for behavioral interivew questions:

 

1.  Select a few different sitautions that can be re-purposed towards varied competencies and values.

2.  Use the CAR method for responding to behavioral interview questions (the one that I provide in my book)

 

C - Describe the circumstances

A - What actions you took and who did you involve

R - What were the results; tie them to the key measures for the position/company  (for example:  customer service, sales, expenses, employee engagement, etc.)

3.  Practice rehearsing your responses with a friend or family member

 

Don't memorize your responses, because they need to be genuine!

 

Hope this helps!!!

And, if you play your cards right, hiring managers should recognize your determination and quickly put you on their short-list for jobs that may help you along your journey. Don’t just search for a new job; develop your career with these 6 steps (hiring managers, keep these 6 steps in mind when attracting and closing talent): 1.

Great suggestions in this article!

 

Informational meetings and expanding your networking efforts are steps only a small percentage of candidates are doing.  Remember, laying the groundwork for when an opportunity opens up.

 

The informational meetings will help give you the inside scoop, and will also help the people you are speaking with understanding on what positions you are seeking, and understand what it is you are asking to help you with.
