The advantage a job seeker has who has never been through a Behavioral
Interview session is rather simple: they are not sweating bullets.
Behavioral Interview sessions are not that bad once you understand that the
process is, how to respond to the questions, and most importantly, thinking
through the process prior to responding ...or THINK FIRST BEFORE TALKING.
It is important you understand:
a) why this interviewing style is so popular
b) why you should let it keep you awake at night
c) why you want to organize your thoughts prior to the interview
d) how to handle a situation you never experienced before
Understand the importance of telling a story and the components that every
good story contains. Look at stories from Walt Disney in how he and this very
talented team captivated people of all ages for decades. One signal your
response is going well in an interview is the interviewers will slightly lean closer
to you to hear everything clearly ... they have become consumed by your story
which is GREAT for you.
We do want to maximize the time for everyone to go through a few questions
to get a better understanding of the process and have some critiques. BUT we
need to get you information PRIOR to the class to help you learn even more. To
achieve that I need you to commit that you will be coming by NOON APRIL 2ND
so I can send you some material and you have time to learn the material. You
can attend without reading the material but you will not be as strong of a job
candidate if you do not. We have nothing to loose while you do. Read the stuff.
You will make mistakes in the practice sessions ... that's why it is for practice.
You will make mistakes in the interview and kick yourself over it. Don't do that.
Everyone makes mistakes ... so it's a matter of fixing them during the interview.
We're human ... learn from our mistakes and apply the lessons for improvement.
Indicate your intent to attend by NOON, SUNDAY APRIL 2 by e-mailing
Zurkammer@outlook.com using the Subject "Second Saturday" and please
include your name. Our desire is to have a few sample questions done before
everyone then break up into small groups which will include peer feedback.
