Strength based interview guidance
Strength based interviews assess what you enjoy doing. Employers are looking for the following when conducting a strength based interview:
- That you show drive and engagement
- That you are absorbed by the tasks and conversations
- That you can efficiently learn new methods and techniques
- That you can perform well
- That you take advantage of things that play to your strengths
Here are some examples of some strength based interview questions:
- What do you do particularly well at?
- What drives/motivates you?
- What is your learning style?
- Tell me about something you did that you’re proud of
- Would you describe yourself as a starter or a finisher?
- What do you do to effectively plan your time?
- Tell me about a time you achieved something you were especially proud of?
- Tell me about your achievements and how you made them happen?
- Do you think this role matches your skills, experience and abilities?
If you practice some structured answers to the above, you should avoid making any mistakes. Make sure that you prepare some questions to ask the interviewers so that you find out more about the role and the organisation.
