Behavioral vs Traditional Interview Questions

The idea behind behavioral questioning is that the most accurate predictor of future performance is past performance conducted in comparable situations. Behavioral questions focus on the past, so employers can attempt to predict future behavior and performance. (Situational questions, on the other hand, tend to focus on the present and the future – page 55). As opposed to the term “behavioral questions,” a more accurate term that job seekers would better understand would be past performance interview questions. Traditional interviewing questions ask job seekers to state their beliefs and opinions. “Tell me about yourself.” “What are your strengths and weaknesses?” “Why do you want to work for this company?” “Where do you see yourself in three years; five years?”
