Competency Based Interviewing Course

About the course:

Competency-based interviews (also known as structured, behavioral or situational interviews) are designed to test one or more skills or competencies. The interviewer has a list of set questions, each focusing on a specific skill, and your answers will be compared against pre-determined criteria and marked accordingly.

Competency interviews work on the principle that past behavior is the best indicator of future performance. They can be used by employers across all sectors but are particularly favored by large graduate recruiters, who may use them as part of an assessment Centre.

They differ from normal or unstructured interviews, which tend to be more informal. In unstructured interviews recruiters often ask a set of random, open-ended questions relevant to the job, such as ‘what can you do for the company?’ and ‘why did you apply for the job?’ to get an overall impression of who you are. A competency-based interview is more systematic and each question targets a skill needed for the job.
