If you’ve ever been involved in hiring employees, you probably know that hiring the right person can save you a lot of time and prevent a lot of headaches. But how do you know which candidates are best suited to the position? How do you see beyond their self-presentation in the interview into how they will handle important on-the-job situations?
One method that is proving effective is called the behavioral interview. This is an interview in which the interviewer asks the candidate to describe how they handled various situations relevant to the experience discussed in the resume. The success of this strategy is tied to the strong correlation between past behavior and future behavior. As an employer, if you can see how a candidate has handled challenges, stresses, ethical issues and working conflicts in the past, you can get a pretty good idea of how they will do in similar situations if hired.
