It is common practice for hiring managers to include a few behavioural questions in job interviews to see if you possess skills and abilities needed for the job. Your responses give them a clear idea of how you would handle a similar situation if you were to be hired. While every interview is a little different, here are 20 smart responses to some common behavioural interview questions that could help you prepare.
1. Tell us about a time when you were asked to do something you had never done before. How did you respond?
Talk about what you learned, the excitement to tackle new challenges, and willingness to leave your comfort zone to learn something valuable from the experience.
2. Describe a situation in which you embraced a new system, process, technology or idea different from the old way of doing things.
Talk about a specific situation where you bring focus on your eagerness to explore new ways of working, what you learned, how you embraced change and found a better way.
