Demystifying Behavioral Interviewing

By Carole Martin

What exactly is this technique called Behavioral Interviewing?

It’s a technique employers use to determine whether you are a good fit for the job by asking questions that pertain to your past behavior.

“Tell me about a time when you were successful because you worked hard and went above and beyond the assigned duties of the job.”
