What is the best way to prepare for a Behavioral Based Interview?

Behavioral based interviews are based on the theory that past behavior is the best indicator of future behavior.

·         Identify the core competencies for the position.  You can pick these up in the job description and company’s values/ mission statement.

·         Think about your strongest accomplishments in each of these competencies.

·         Prepare stories to explain your accomplishments.  Be concise and complete with your answers. 

·         Keep your stories to 2-3 minutes.

·         Use the acronym STAR (Situation/ Task, Action, and Result)

·         Be positive and show enthusiasm.  Make your nonverbal communication support your stories.
