The interview is the go to method and an essential tool for recruiters in finding the ideal employee. Interviewers ask for many things from the interviewee in order to gaining an insight into the type of person the interviewee is. Competency based interviews take a more detailed turn and forces the interviewee to show evidence and examples the interviewee has encountered, where they have accomplished certain tasks using certain skills. In short, competency based interviews relate to past situations. This will show the interviewer how you will react to similar situations in their employment if you are successful.
