Many companies today are using a technique called Behavioral Interviewing to help learn about a candidate’s past behavior in particular work situations assuming that past behavior is a predictor of future behavior. These firms will likely have a specific set of behaviors that are indicators of success in their culture, and interviewers will probe to see if the candidate has exhibited those behaviors in the past. By understanding and preparing for a Behavioral Interview, both the potential employer and you – the candidate – can assess if there is a good cultural match.
Facilitated by a TBJL Career Strategist

WHAT IS LINKS: LINKS is an acronym for Leads, Information, Networking, Know-how, and Strategies. It is an educational and motivational program designed to help candidates prepare for the week ahead and to share conversation, contacts, and job-search information in a relaxed, friendly environment. For the unemployed professional, LINKS is a “place to go” to focus on the job search when others go to work on Monday Mornings. LINKS sessions are free and open to the public. Reservations are required.
