» What is a Behavioural or HR interview?
Behavioural interviews are based on the premise that a person's past performance on the job is the best predictor of future performance. When a company uses behavioural interviewing they want to know how you act and react in certain circumstances. They also want you to give specific "real life" examples of how you behaved in situations relating to the questions.
In a behavioural interview, an employer has decided what skills are necessary for the job and the questions you will be asked will be geared to finding out if you have those skills. The interviewer wants to know how you handled certain situations, rather than just gathering information about you.
In a traditional job interview, you will be asked a series of questions which typically have uncomplicated answers like "What did you like about your job?" or "What are your strengths and weaknesses?" or "What were your responsibilities?"
Behavioural interview questions will be more focused. For example, "Give an example of a goal you reached and tell me how you achieved it?" or "Have you handled a difficult situation with a supervisor? How?"
