The job interview. It’s a constantly evolving environment. Just when candidates think they have figured it all out, they are exposed to competencybased interview questions (also known as behavioral-style interviews) that leave them clueless as to how to respond.
Competency-based interviews are quickly gaining popularity among hiring professionals as the most effective questioning strategy to identify and hire the right people. But what are competency-based interviews and how do these interviews work? Competency-based interviews are when interviewers focus on core competencies that are essential for success on the job. In addition, behavioral-style interview questions target the candidates’ accomplishments, which gives them an opportunity to showcase their successes.
This book presents 201 competency-based interview questions that you are likely to be asked so you will know the best way to answer these questions. This book provides the tips and guidance you need to succeed in today’s competitive marketplace. To make it easier to navigate through the book, the information is split into three parts.
