Behavioral Interview
• Questions asked from past
  Experience

  experiences how and when you overcame a
  crisis, tackled a problem, dealt with a failure etc.

  your qualities like leadership skills, problem solving
  skills, etc. required for the particular Job Profile.

Be ready to cut short an answer if the interviewer wants to speak or looks impatient. 12. If you don’t understand a question ask the interviewer to explain. 13. Do not be afraid to pause a moment before answering. A good answer is better than a false answer.
