The best predictor of future behavior is past behavior which is the premise behind behavioral-based interviewing. In a traditional job interview, you answer questions on how you might act in a given situation. How does the interviewer know, after all, if you would really react the way you say you would in a given situation? You have minimal accountability. In a behavioral-based interview, however, it’s much more difficult to give responses that are untrue. You give answers based on your behavior in past situations. More and more employers are using this interview approach and this class will prepare you so you are the one who scores the job.
