Interviews have changed over the last decade. This means, there has been a move away from traditional to competency based interviews. It is important to note, these interviews are also know as structured or behavioural interviews. And, Public Sector, Civil Service, HSE, and County Council all use them. It is important to note, many multinationals use competency based interviews too. Because job interviews have changed, your job interview preparation must change too.
What are Competency Based Interviews?
This style of interview consists of a number of targeted questions. And, they require interviewees to describe specific tasks or situations. CBI’s work on the assumption that the best indication of future behaviour is past behaviour. Generally, interviewees are assessed against 4-6 competencies. An example of a typical competency “presenting and communicating”. And, a typical question “Tell me about a time when you had to present ideas to a group of people? Talk me through your approach?
