Behavioral interviewing is based on the premise that past performance is an indicator of future performance. It focuses on experiences, behaviors, and skills related to the specific job - not hypothetical situations. When employers use behavioral interviewing, they ask targeted questions to determine if the candidate has the specific skills for the job.

Interview Interrupted takes you into the mind of the interviewer, telling you why they asked each question, what responses they are seeking, and how they interpret your answers. It is a candid look inside the place we all want to be in the interview - the mind of the person asking the questions.
Duration: 23 Minutes
