Managers today are going beyond asking potential hires to list their strengths and weaknesses. Instead, they’re opting for behavior-based interview questions. These questions ask you to describe how you’ve conducted yourself in past situations in an effort to shed light on how you’ll perform on the job.
We help you prepare for scheduled and targeted interviews, behavioral-based interviews, or general interviews. For example, do you know what to say when asked, "Why should we hire you?" or “Tell us about a situation where you didn’t agree with your manager?” or “Describe a time you had to deal with a difficult employee.”
This package is ideal for the person who’s fairly confident in his/her oral presentation skills, but needs a starting point to help put together a strategic action plan to develop a job-winning oral presentation for a behavioral-based interview. You’ll learn about the different interview types and questions typically asked in most interviews. You’ll also learn how to identify and adapt your answers to the interviewer’s style. This package includes:
General Interviewing Insights Assessment (GIIA). This specialized assessment, which takes about 10 minutes and can be done in the comfort of your own home, provides a very realistic and typically accurate assessment of how you communicate with others and how others perceive you. This is important, because it can raise awareness of flaws within your communication style that might be holding you back from success.
One hour of coaching. We’ll review your GIIA and also present an interactive interviewing success model to help you begin preparing your presidential statement and overview, which will increase your interviewing success. Our experts will also review your behavioral interview answers and help you craft personalized responses for future success. This foundation will give you a strategic direction to help you prepare for your next behavior-based interview, whether through phone screening, one-on-one, or a group/panel.
A 30-minute, mock interview. We will craft 12 to 15 questions based on your target position or job to represent a sampling of different interview question types. We’ll focus on key behavior-based interview questions.
An evaluation of your answers conducted live with your coach. We’ll set aside a meeting time to discuss your answers, at which time your coach will provide constructive feedback designed to raise your awareness of any deficiencies and to reinforce any strengths. One key area will be examining your behavioral interview answers. During this time, we’ll help you find positive examples from previous employment to help illustrate desired skill sets.
This more advanced package is designed for the professional who would like to practice his/her interviewing skills with a coach. In addition to the areas covered in our basic interview coaching package, this package — which places even more of an emphasis on behavioral interview questions — will include:
A 30-minute, mock interview. We will craft 12 to 15 questions based on your target position or job to represent a sampling of different interview question types.
An evaluation of your answers conducted live with your coach. We’ll set aside a meeting time to discuss your answers, at which time your coach will provide constructive feedback designed to raise your awareness of any deficiencies and to reinforce any strengths.
