“Tell me about a time when…”

10:00 - 12:00

Competency based questions are commonly used in application forms and interview processes for graduate jobs. Although they often seem straight forward, these types of questions can be difficult if you are not well prepared. This online presentation will provide you with examples of competency based questions and give you the opportunity to practice 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.
