In this 75-minute interactive session, participants are introduced to behavioural interviewing—a method the interviewer can use to keep the discussion focused on the competencies required for the job.

Participants learn that this method is based on the assumption that the best indicator of future performance is past performance and that by asking candidates questions that require them to respond with specific examples of past experiences the interviewer can accurately assess the candidate’s fit for the job.

In the session, participants practice writing behavioural questions.  They also learn how to ask their questions in a particular sequence, which helps move the interview along efficiently.  Finally, participants practise conducting an interview, following a tested process for moving through the interview.
