15 Ways To Excel At Situational Interview Questions

Forbes

Feb 22, 2017

Job interviews can be nerve-wracking enough without having to worry about whether they will require situational examples. More and more companies are turning toward behavioral questions during an interview to get a good understanding of how a potential candidate will react under stress, pressure or when challenged.

Often, when I ask an interview question that a candidate isn't prepared for, they rush to answer. I am not testing reactivity, I am trying to see what someone's process is when they are thrown. The candidates I hire take the time to pause and ask for a minute to gather their thoughts and present a cohesive answer. Pauses are totally acceptable, don't forget that.
