Tell me about a time when…
Waynesboro, VA (PRWEB) January 29, 2009
Palladian introduces a new line of services dedicated to preparing job seekers for behavioral interviews. Behavioral interviews are continuing to be utilized by companies more frequently. This interview style requires job seekers to prepare thoroughly to perform at their best. Palladian's new services are tailored to helping job seekers understand how to succeed in a behavioral interview.
Behavioral interviewing is a technique where the interviewer asks the candidate to describe specific situations and actions the candidate has encountered. A behavioral interview question usually starts with "Tell me about a time when…" and then describes a specific situation.
Hiring managers select behavioral interview questions from the skills and activities that are most critical to the position. The goal is to get a picture of the candidate doing the job. Some of the common topics for behavioral interview questions include: Leadership, Performance Management, Continuous Improvement, Teamwork, Project Management, Character, Values and Attitude.
Behavioral interview questions can target any situation that could arise in a job. A few examples of behavioral interview questions include:
- Tell me about a time when you faced a difficult leadership challenge.
- Tell me about a time when you had a tight deadline to meet.
- Tell me about a time when you did not get along with a co-worker.
- Tell me about a time when you failed to meet a goal.
- Tell me about a time when you did not work well with your supervisor.
The key to answering effectively is giving a very specific, detailed answer, and this requires preparation. Palladian designed their coaching services to prepare a job seeker quickly and effectively.
Palladian offers one-on-one behavioral interview coaching sessions and mock behavioral interviews. In addition, Palladian has a behavioral interview prep package that includes one-on-one coaching and mock interviews. Combining the coaching with the practice is the most effective way to prepare quickly for a behavioral interview. All of Palladian's interview coaching services are conducted by phone, making it easy for job seekers to get the help they need to succeed.
