The Traditional Interview

In this type of interview, the interviewer will run through the applicant’s resume using open-ended questions to gain more information. Many of the questions a job applicant will be asked can be anticipated beforehand, but for a list of common questions, click here.

Behavioural Event Interviewing (BEI)

During a behavioural event interview, you will be asked a series of standardised questions designed to get you to talk about how you handled certain situations in the past. With each answer, you’ll be expected to describe a specific situation from your past, and what you did and thought in that situation. The interviewer will use this information to assess your proficiency in one or more job competency areas, which may include anything from Innovation to Leadership to Problem Solving.

BEI questions may be dropped into a ‘chatty interview’ or you may be formally required to answer a set list. You can expect interviewers to have several follow up questions and probe for details that explore all aspects of a given situation or experience.
