Thirty-five competency interview guides provide an easy-to-follow format for structured, behavioral-based interviews. Each guide, with specific questions related to each of the thirty-five competencies in Workitect’s competency dictionary, makes it easy for a hiring manager or interviewer to collect behavioral examples about a candidate’s relevant work experiences and accomplishments. While the process described below is designed for multiple interviewers seeing each candidate, it can be completed with only one interviewer.

The Guides provide:
•Specific questions and probes for each competency,
•Specific, high-quality behavioral data describing what superior performers do to achieve superior results,
- Surfacing of non-obvious effective behaviors that job incumbents and their bosses may be unaware of or unable to articulate,
•Strong evidence for a competency model’s validity – evidence that is especially important if the model will be used for external selection
•A competency-based question bank that can be used again and again.
•Ability to identify transferable skills for new hires and existing employees.

1.Prior to the Interview
2.During the Interview
3.Following the Interview
Each interview guide then provides the competency definition and behaviors associated with the competency, followed by potential behavioral-based questions and probes for the competency. In addition, positive and negative behavioral indicators are listed to help the interviewer evaluate the candidate’s responses. Finally, the guides provide
