Behavioral interviewing is an increasingly popular type of job interview, where an interviewee is asked to provide examples from their past employment of specific situations and go through how they behaved in those circumstances.  The logic is that past performance is predictive of future performance, how you behaved in the past will forecast how you will behave in the future. Behavioral interviewing is said to be the most accurate predictor of a candidate’s future performance.  Rather than simply taking a candidate's word for it that they have the skills and capabilities required for the role, in this course you will learn about the methods of interviewing allows them to prove their worth.
