When preparing for the BDI, we recommend applicants familiarize themselves with the STAR (Situation, Task, Action, Result) technique. Each event description should include:
- a situation or task;
- a response (i.e. actions or feelings); and
- an outcome or results.
It is very important to prepare and practice responses to anticipated interview questions. We strongly encourage all applicants to attend a Behavioral Interview Workshop (BDI) offered to ensure your readiness for the BDI stage of the recruitment process.
This workshop offers essential information to the applicant prior to the Behavioral Descriptive Interview. Please see the available dates and times
Tip: Document examples or experiences that demonstrate the six competencies in a positive manner. The interviewer will assess an applicant’s response to stressful conditions and how well the example demonstrates the competency.
