A Behavioural Interview is an interviewing technique that focuses on a candidate's past experiences, behaviours, and actions. The aim is to assess how a candidate would perform in specific situations related to the job role. This type of interview often uses questions that require candidates to provide real-life examples from their past work experience.
Instead of asking a candidate, "How do you handle stress?", you might ask, "Can you describe a specific situation where you had to manage a high-stress scenario at work? What actions did you take, and what was the outcome?" This allows you to gauge the candidate's problem-solving and stress-management skills based on actual events.
