“Tell me about a time when…”
Competency based questions are commonly used in application and interview processes. Although they often seem straight forward, these types of questions can often throw you if you are not well prepared. This online presentation will provide you with examples of competency based questions and give you the opportunity to practise your technique with your peers.
Before the workshop, you may find it helpful to think of real-life examples of when you have used skills such as team work and communication skills. Please have a pen and paper to hand for this part of the workshop.
