50 Behavior Based Interview Questions

“Past performance predicts future productivity,” say employers and recruiters. How do hiring decision makers determine your past performance? Through behavior based interview questions.

Lynda Ford’s article in the Net-Temps Recruiter In Focus newsletter is fantastic and outlines 50 questions recruiters ask job candidates to determine behaviors that revolve around various qualities employers seek such as leadership, initiative, work quality, and more.

Challenge: Select a few of Lynda’s questions and develop your own examples (think achievements) that demonstrate your performance. Tell a story that demonstrates the Challenge, Action, and Results you achieved that relate to the behavior employers are looking for. Results are especially important. Employers like to know you can contribute to their bottom line.
