Behavioral Interviewing Prep Worksheet In a behavioral interview, an employer is trying to get a better understanding of your interpersonal skills and behaviors. Employers typically use these types of questions figuring that the most accurate predictor of future performance is past performance in a similar situation. The questions will usually begin with ―Tell me about a time when…‖ or ―Walk me through a scenario when…‖ These questions are difficult to answer spontaneously. Preparation is the key to acing behavioral interview.

Use this work sheet as a guide to prepare yourself.

Think of at least one example for each of the following topics (more than one is ideal). The example can be from a former job, internship, class project, volunteer activity, etc. When formulating an example, think STAR – Situation, Task, Action, Results.

January 11, 2013 Mr. John Doe Clinical Supervisor Therapy Agency 1234 Drive Los Angeles, CA 90000

Dear Mr. Doe:

I would like to thank you for taking the time to meet with me yesterday. I enjoyed learning more about Therapy Agency and the mission and dedication to your clients. I was particularly impressed by the improvement rates of the programs’ participants.

The position of Clinical Coordinator is of great interest to me. I am excited about the opportunity to manage a team of motivated staff and interact with the clients you serve. My experience will assist me in supporting the population your agency serves as well as understanding the specific needs of the staff I would manage. I am confident that my qualifications make me an excellent fit for your agency.

If you have additional questions, please feel free to contact me at (123) 345-0987 or sally.thanks@college.edu.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Sincerely, Sally Thanks

Here are some suggestions for Men‘s Interview and Job Attire:

 Crisp, clean and well-pressed suit (solid color)  Long sleeve shirt (white or coordinated with the suit)  Belt  Tie  Dark socks  Hair should be neat, professional, and away from the eyes  Limit the aftershave  Neatly trimmed and clean nails  Shoes should be comfortable  Portfolio or briefcase

Women‘s Interview and Job Attire:

 Suit or Suit Skirt (preferably solid color)  Matching Blouse  Comfortable Shoes  Clean nails  Light make up and perfume  Limited jewelry  Professional Hairstyle

Helpful tips:

 Make sure clothes fit and are comfortable  Get everything ready the night before  Remember to keep all the important documents in your portfolio  Cover all tattoos and piercings (other than earrings)  Polish your shoes  Be on time and use breath mints before the interview  Turn off your cell phone before you enter the building Interview Etiquette Dining  Dining with potential employers allows them to see you in a more relaxed environment. Also, it allows them to review your communication and interpersonal skills.

 Before the interview, check out the restaurant. Look over the menu, find the bathrooms etc. This will allow you to be familiar in the environment and ease any nerves.

 Be interested in the conversation. Communicate with the employer.

 Be polite. Say “Please” and “Thank you” to the employer as well as the restaurant employees.

 To be sure you use the correct utensils, work your way from the outside in. In other words, the fork meant for the appetizer will be the furthest from your plate, and the fork meant for the main course will be next to your plate. Forks and/or spoons located above the plate are intended for dessert.

 As soon as everyone is seated, place your napkin in your lap.

 Arrange silverware as in the image.

 Sit up straight and keep elbows off the table.

 If you leave the table during the meal, place your napkin in your seat.

 Do not order messy foods (i.e. ribs, foods with heavy sauces).

 Do not order expensive foods.

 Do not drink an alcoholic beverage under any circumstances. Even if the employer has a drink, or offers you one, politely decline.

 Do not speak with your mouth full. Wait until you have swallowed the food and taken a drink to speak.

 Do not offer to pay the bill or tip.

 Do order foods that can be cut into small bites.

 Do chew with your mouth closed.

 When finished eating, place your fork face down on your plate.

 Then, place your knife over the fork. It should look like this:

 When the meal is over and you are leaving, place your napkin on the table next to your plate.

 Say thank you to the employer.

 Send a “Thank you” note to the employer.

–  –  –

NEVER BRING UP SALARY during the interview because if you give a salary number that is too high employers cannot afford you, and if you give a salary number that is too low you won‘t earn as much. Ideally it should only be approached at the time you are offered the position.

If you are asked in the first interview, “What salary are you seeking?” or something along those lines, you should respond by deflecting the question. At this point, the employer is mainly asking you this question to weed out candidates who do not fit based on their salary requirements. Or they are hoping that they may surprise you by asking you the question early, and be able to get you for a bargain. Whatever happens, your best strategies are to postpone the salary discussion until they are ready to make an offer or to get the interviewer to give you the hiring range.

If asked, your answer can be somewhere along these lines:
