Interviews with IT professionals focus on work history, technical skills, project involvement and how the candidate behaved in past work situations (also known as behavioural questions). Read on to find out more about what to expect in interviews and the best framework to use when answering questions…
Behavioural interviewing is based on the theory “the most accurate predictor of future performance is past performance in a similar situation”. For example, if you ordered a latte with one sugar last time you bought a coffee, you’ll probably order the same next time you buy a coffee.
You know you are being asked a Behavioural Interview Question when you need to give a past example of how you performed in a specific situation. Specific situations will relate to the most important competencies/skills required to do the job. See the job description for guidance and inspiration.
