Competency-based interviews are an effective method for predicting candidates' future performance based on their past experience, behavior and motivation. As TalentFocus, we analyze candidates' job-related competencies, skills and potential in depth using these techniques. This approach enables more accurate and informed decisions to be made during the recruitment process.

How Competency-Based Interview Techniques Work

  • Structured Questions: Competency-based interviews use structured questions specifically designed to understand whether candidates demonstrate certain competencies.

  • Real Life Scenarios: Candidates are presented with real life scenarios and asked how they would act in these scenarios. With this, candidates' practical skills and problem-solving abilities are evaluated.

  • Behavioral Assessment: Candidates are evaluated based on their behavior and attitudes in their past experiences, as well as their suitability for the job and their potential performance.
