Situational Interviews

Situational Interviews:

In this style of interview, the interviewer gives a hypothetical situation to which the candidate is expected to explain how they would handle the situation.

For example, in Situational Interviews, a candidate applying for a sales based role could be asked to demonstrate selling an item to the interviewer. The interviewer may even pretend to be a difficult customer to see how the candidate would handle the situation. Usually beginning with “describe a” or “explain how”

This style of an interview can replace the behavioural interview and is more likely to be used on junior candidates. It can also be used in addition to other interview styles to help enhance the process and help weed out the perfect candidate. Candidates would find this style of interview useful to demonstrate their skills and talents.
