They didn't want to know in theory. They wanted a specific time, place, and people and the situation. To be honest, I didn't do very stellar in any of my interviews. I never do. But just be honest and humble and I believe anyone will make it through the interview phase if they try. Good luck!

When answered with a STAR response (Situation, Task, Approach, Results), it can give employers the upper hand when selecting talent. A traditional or conversational unstructured interview has little more success than a coin flip, whilst there is evidence to show that behavioral interviews are widely successful. A truly good candidate should be able to reflect (shows that they self evaluate and are perceptive), articulate (shows communications skills), and explain different scenarios demonstrating their experience with the underlying skill in question. There is typically a skill or behavior behind the question- something like, "tell me about a time you led a team when you were not an expert and the others were" is a question designed to understand your ability to be humble and listen to others. Hope that helps! Frances on Apr 15, 2014 Interviews > Financial Advisor > Edward Jones Add Answers or Comments To comment on this, Sign In or Sign Up.
