Interview: Behavioral Questions

Module: 5

In this module, you will learn how to be prepared for behavior-based interview questions. The format of the interview is just like any other, but these questions will be designed to draw out how you behaved in past situations. You won’t be able to predict which questions an employer will bring up, so watch the video below to better prepare yourself.

Watch the video below to learn from US Army Veteran and Executive Talent Acquisition Expert – George Randle – as he shares how to answer interview questions that are designed to draw out your behaviors.
