During your job search, you will take part in many interviews. Some of the interviews will be informational and you will be the one conducting them (when reaching out to Baylor alumni or professionals in a position that you have an interest in learning more about). While other interviews will have you answering challenging questions meant to test your personality and confidence for the job. The Baylor University Career Center can help you with both types of interviews.
It’s important to do your homework before an interview. We will teach you how to use a process called “The 3 Whys” which will ensure that you’ve uncovered all the information you need to have. We will go over different types of interview questions (general, behavioral, or case) and how to answer them using the STAR method. The STAR method is a technique of answering behavioral interview questions in a structured manner by describing a specific situation, task, action, and result of the situation you are discussing. The STAR method helps you explain in a simple yet powerful way how you handled specific work situations and challenges.
