What if there were a way to predict how a candidate will perform on the job? There is. It is called behavior-based interviewing. Working habits and past actions are the practical foundation for predicting job performance. The good news is that you can learn how to ask past-event questions and gain behavioral predictors of job performance.

Seminar Objectives:
- Define behavior-based interviewing as a job-related interviewing strategy that draws from past actions to predict future performance.
- Explain the benefits of using a behavior-based interviewing strategy.
- Formulate behavior-based interview questions.
- Gain behavioral predictors by asking past-event questions and following up with behavioral probes.
