Part III: Responding to Questions > Behavior Evaluation Criteria

Chapter 15. Behavior Evaluation Criteria

Expect to be evaluated on five to ten behavioral criteria. Behavioral criteria are defined as the actual skill requirements for the position in question. Who determines the criteria? The interviewer. The criteria are defined by his or her research using such sources as job descriptions, performance reviews, and interviews with employees who hold, or have held, the job. It is much of the same information you have learned to gather as part of your job search.

It is necessary to be familiar with each criterion so you can prepare appropriate responses. Let’s look at 20 criteria typically used in the interview process. Each one is followed by four suggestions to help you think about a logical response. This takes time, but the effort will result in detailed and complete interview answers that will impress any interviewer. As you review each criterion, write any ideas that come to mind in the space provided, no matter how trivial. These initial thoughts will assist when the time comes to fill in details.
