One of the most popular types of interview questions is called behavioral questions. Behavioral Questions ask you to describe actual examples of work or other actives which demonstrate they have successfully mastered or had sufficient experience with a particular set of skills.
    In other words, the interviewer is asking you if you have certain skills they are looking for. Your task is to provide through examples or two that you have in a different or similar context. The key is that the recruiter is looking to discover what type of person you are by exposing your values, integrity and maturity in your examples and how you communicate with them.

The following is a listing of different questions. Try to answer each one, using an example of past experiences in your answer.

Describe a situation where you had a disagreement/conflict with a co-worker. How did you go about it? What was the outcome? If a similar situation arose how would you deal with it?

What aspects of your last position would you like to avoid in your next position?

Tell me about your experiences in public or group speaking?
