Tips from Dot Recruiters
When going through the behavioral interview process, it is important to keep a few things in mind:
“Vague responses that include generalizations and do not provide a specific situation should be avoided,” said Fosdyck. “Be sure to provide a specific example to answer the question.”
“Try to make the connection from the question we ask, to what we are trying to learn about you through that question,” said Corporate Recruiter Aaron Littig. “For example, if we ask ‘Tell us about a challenging team dynamic you have been involved in,’ we are trying to see how open you are to working with others, and how you may contribute to improving a team.”
Behavioral interviewing can be challenging—but the more you do it, the easier it gets. Be sure to take the time before your interview to ponder your past experiences and how you would benefit the company, and vice versa. Doing the research and rehearsing for the interview are two ways to get closer to nailing the interview and landing your next job!
