Lesson Content

Behavioral Interviewing which also goes by the acronym BEI (Behavioral Event Interviewing) is a structured set of questions that elicits concrete examples from the candidate that demonstrate and describe the level of competence of his/her KSA, Knowledge, Skills and Attitudes. It's touted as providing a more objective set of facts to make employment decisions. Behavioral based questions provide you with specific information about the candidate: skills, knowledge, attitude, personality, perspective, problem-solving approach, decision-making approach, and underlying beliefs and values. From candidates' responses you can measure both "hard" skills and "soft" skills. Soft skills can also be referred to as unique differentiators or enabling competencies.
