Behavioral Interview Questions

Behavioral Interview Questions :

What besides your duties did you provide to your previous organization?

By asking this question, the interviewer is trying to understand your interest towards development. The ideal way can be by describing a new helping pattern and you had set for the improvement of quality and quantity of work in your previous organization.

If your supervisor was not available for an important decision to be made, what did you do?

This question will judge your aptitude to make a decision. Never tell the interviewer that you simply waited for your supervisor to return. Tell him that you made the decision yourself. If the requirement of superior authority was a must, you endeavored to get hold of the supervisor. Once the supervisor was found, you explained the situation and the decision you have made and got the approval.

What would your previous supervisor say your strongest point is?

There are numerous good possibilities….Loyalty, Energy, Positive attitude, Leadership, Team player, Expertise, Initiative, Patience, Hard work, Creativity, Problem solver….

Were you ever asked to stay back after your working time?

This is a question where you can make extra points. Here you can explain how made a voluntary stay back for the opportunity to learn and help your seniors in their work. This helped you to understand the functioning of the senior management and the organization better.

Why do you want to leave this job after only four months?

Well, why did you? What is the closest to the truth…

Job was not as it was described to me.

Organization changed its focus / goals.

Organization could not effectively use my talents / skills.

Change in management...wanted to bring in own staff.



All of these will probably prompt a follow¬up question. Do not fabricate...but most interviewers have heard these stories before and really are not interested in all the gory details. (Note that this job need not be included on your resume since it was of such a short duration but may have to be included in a application form if it looks to account for all your time.)

Circumstances also come to play...did you leave your other job to take this 4 month job? or did you try it while already unemployed...hoping for the best? If you were recruited to change jobs, there is a lot of room for exaggeration in a sales pitch and many employees have been misled.

If you have held other jobs for substantial periods and you took the other job in good faith, stress your past performance. You are not a capricious person - job hopping. You have skills to offer and want to put them into good use.
