WHY DO IT? Using behavioral interviewing can increase by nearly 60% your chances of hiring the RIGHT employee. * Some researchers indicate 80%. Others say it is 5 times more accurate that traditional interviewing for choosing the right candidates. ** *Salgado, J. F. (1997) Personnel Selection Methods in C. L. Cooper and I. T. Robinson, International Review of Industrial and Organizational Psychology, New York: Wiley. **Green, 2005
ANOTHER “WHY” In one study, researchers found that between 8 and 21 behavioral examples could be found in a single interview* *Green, Wetzel, Somerville, 1983
AND ANOTHER The 7 Hidden Reasons Employees Leave their jobs: 1. The job or workplace was not as expected 2. Mismatch between job and person 3. Too little coaching and feedback 4.

TYPES OF INTERVIEW QUESTIONS Type Example Application Behavior-based Tell me about a specific time when you faced this type of challenge and what you did to address it. To evaluate how a person has performed in the past in a similar job Situational A colleague has told you, in confidence, that she suspects another colleague of stealing. What would you do? To evaluate how a person might approach a situation with which they have little or no prior experience Self-evaluation What do you feel are your greatest strengths? To explore alignment with organization’s values, work styles and attitudes Simulation Please take two minutes to identify all the spelling and punctuation errors in this document. To validate specific skills shared on a resume or in an interview
GETTING THE COMPLETE PICTURE CAPABILITY – the knowledge and skills to do the job COMMITMENT – the attitude and motivation to do the job effectively CHEMISTRY – sufficient alignment of the candidate’s values and working styles with those of the organization (i. e. , its culture)
TRADITIONAL INTERVIEWS (WHAT’S WRONG WITH THIS PICTURE? ) • Tell me more about yourself. • What are your strengths/weaknesses? • What challenges did you face in your last position? • How did you handle them? • How do you handle stress and pressure on the job? • Who was your best client? Your worst? • Why should we hire you? • What would you do if an angry 4 -H parent came to our door and…. ?
TRADITIONAL INTERVIEWS What do they tell us? What don’t they tell us?
LOGIC/PREMISE BEHIND B-B INTERVIEWING Past Performance predicts future performance
PROCESS • Carefully structured • In-depth questions • Used to gather and evaluate information on experience and skills which have already been determined to be necessary. • Helps predict employee performance and reduce subjectivity

BEHAVIORAL INTERVIEWS These take a lot of work PRIOR to the interview Requires advance preparation Need to know skills/abilities/behaviors necessary for the position Need to determine what questions would help find out if interviewee HAS those skills/abilities and behaviors Behavioral interviews end up being more probing and much more specific. Requires applicants to “tell a story” about what they’ve done in a specific type of situation. Requires allowing pauses to require an answer
