If you haven’t had a job interview in awhile, you may be surprised when you get asked what are called “behavioral interview” questions. These are questions that ask you to describe how you handled a past job situation in a way that concisely conveys your impact. This can be hard to do and preparation is key!

In this recorded webinar, you’ll discover how employers use the behavioral interview to evaluate candidates, learn strategies for telling your most compelling story, and find tips for how to prepare. Hear from experts who specialize in advising job seekers and also from a Path Forward returner who conquered the behavioral interview as part of her own return-to-work journey. This webinar was hosted by Tami Forman, former executive director of Path Forward.
