It is natural to be nervous when going into a job interview. After all, you want to make the best impression on a potential employer that tells him or her that you are the right candidate for a specific job. While you may have practiced answering certain interview questions, you don't know exactly which ones will be asked. Sure, some of the questions you've prepared for may be asked, but perhaps some curve balls could be thrown your way in the form of behavioral interview questions.
Behavioral interview questions help an employer to determine whether or not a candidate has the right skill set he or she is looking for in the workplace. In this type of interview, a candidate must be able to answer specific questions about certain situations.
Her are some examples of behavioral 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 stressful situation at work and how you handled it.
-How do you handle a challenge?
-What do you do when your scheduled is interrupted?
See the source below to find out more behavioral interview questions.
When preparing for your next job interview, practice answering some behavioral interview questions. That way you will be ready to swing at any potential curve balls throw by an employer.
