In mastering these tough questions, expect ones that start like this:
- Tell be about a time when..."
- Give me an example of how you..."
- Describe a situation where you..",
- Think of situation where something didn't work out. What did you learn?
When you answer, it's not what you say, but how you say it. Once I was asked: "tell me about a time where something you did backfired in a class (I teach)". Whoa! Why would I tell the interviewer about my failings. I described a time where I misread the class needs, but then explained what I learned from it.
Like anything else, the more experience you have with behavioral interviews, the better you get.
