I am invited for an interview and the letter states it is a competency based interview, what does this mean?

1 answer

Employers use Competency Based Interviews (CBIs) to ensure that candidates are assessed against similar criteria which in turn makes it easier to make meaningful comparisons between applicants. Examples of opening questions are:
Tell me about an time when you have…managed change
Describe an example of….effective communication
Tell us about an occasion when you had to….solve a problem
These will generally be followed-up with more in-depth questions tailored to the candidate’s past performance and behaviours.
For more examples we suggest you Google the term. The secret of success is preparation.
