  • A behavioral interview is when the interviewer tests you for the soft skills that are required for the job. He/she can ask you situation based questions, that would test how quick you are, or how honest you are or whether or not you are confident. In such questions, you are to give examples out of your professional life to substantiate your claims. So, before you go to the interview, you need to sit down with a calm mind, and recall all those special projects or situations you’ve dealt with.
  • Make sure you review the job profile you are interviewing for, and make a list of all the possible skills that profile demands. Accordingly you note down your accomplishments and behavioral characteristics.
  • If you are not sure on how to go about a question, you could use the following points to come up with an answer: think of a specific situation, the jobs that were to be completed, the problems you were facing, how you went about the problem, and what the end result was.
  • Lastly, it is important to understand that a behavioral question has no correct or wrong answer. The interviewer is simply trying to understand you personality, individuality and morality.

Good luck!
