A: Our competency-based interviewing and testing looks to assess key skills and competencies required for the position. We recommend that you read through our website to get a good understanding of the organization and read the job posting to understand the position you’ve applied for.
Competency-based interviewing techniques ensure the process is fair, objective and job-related. The specific type of questions you’ll be asked depends on the requirements of the job we’re interviewing you for.
Before the interview:
- Be prepared. Demonstrating you have prepared for the interview speaks volumes about your initiative and interest. Get a copy of the job description and look at the duties, education and experience requirements, and the technical and behavioural competencies. Think of several situations in which you demonstrated the job requirements (for example, leadership skills, problem-solving skills, communication skills).
- Practice. Think about your experiences, accomplishments and competencies and practice describing them.
At the interview:
- Arrive at the interview early (never be late) and bring a pen and notepad.
- Be yourself during the interview. As difficult as it may seem, try to relax.
- Listen carefully to the questions and answer them to the best of your ability.
- If none of your prepared examples fit the questions asked in the interview, take time to think about your answers. You can’t anticipate all of the possible questions, so be prepared to think on your feet.
- Be honest. Interviewers will ask follow-up questions and check references to test for accuracy and consistency.
A: Yes, anyone who is interviewed or tested will be contacted whether they are the successful applicant or not.
