Behavioural/Competency Questions

Behavioural interviews (also known as competency based interviews) are becoming increasingly popular in the contemporary recruitment process.  They are regularly used by Multinationals and the public sector and are seen to be a good predictor of future employee success.  As many “traditional” interviews have also started incorporating behavioural questions into their structure, it is important to be fully prepared for this style of questioning – to both understand what is being asked and how best to present your answers.
