Hiring is a difficult task in the best of circumstances. There are two types of questions that can be used in an interview – Situational Interview questions and Behavioral Interview questions. Situational questions involve giving a candidate a hypothetical work situation and asking them how they would respond. Behavioral questions involve questions that ask how a candidate has handled a particular situation in a previous job. A situation question might be: If you saw a co-working stealing, what would you do? A behavioral question might be: Describe a time when you worked for the perfect boss. What was she or he like?
Choose the company you work for or another organization, identify a position and describe what the job involves. Then create two examples of Behavioral Interview Questions and two examples of Situational Interview questions.
