30 Behavioral Interview Questions from LinkedIn Talent Solutions
Great businesses are built on people. People who not only have the right skills and experience, but who have the potential to do great things in the role, the team and in the company.
However, screening candidates for potential is the toughest part of an interview. Oftentimes you assess someone’s potential by looking at their soft skills and unique perspectives. Yet in a 30 minute conversation, it’s really difficult to fully understand the person behind the profile.
The good news is that behavioral interview questions are a proven way to reveal a person’s potential, specifically their ability to adapt, grow, collaborate, prioritize, lead, and strengthen company culture. By looking at their past behavior as well as their skills and experience, you’ll instinctively know if they have all the qualities you need in your next hire.
