Interview Tips, Techniques and Types

Job interview tips, techniques, types, sample questions and virtual practice from the Web are linked below. Includes common, telephone, group, panel, case and behavioral interviews. But first, our two cents.

Telephone interviews are pretty much the same as the common type. But employers typically use them to initially screen candidates for face-to-face interviews. They'll likely ask common questions.

For the group interview type, you'll gather with other interviewees to discuss topics and answer questions as individuals or teams. It might also include role-playing exercises. The purpose is typically to see how you act amongst your peers.

In a panel interview (aka "tag-team") type, you'll face a "firing squad" of several interviewers all at once or in succession. The purpose is typically to see how you act under pressure. For both group and panel interviews, you'd prepare by practicing the other types.

The behavioral interview is one of the toughest. Interviewers ask questions about how you reacted in certain job-related situations, in an attempt to anticipate your future behavior on the job.

Case interviews are even tougher. Also called stress, situational and hypothetical, they typically consist of "what if..." scenarios (cases) you must resolve on the spot. Employers conduct them mostly for management and business-related jobs or consulting gigs. But technical interviews sometimes consist of case-like exercises, called brainteasers.

If you're specifically looking for technical question samples, tips, techniques, brainteasers and such, see Technical Interview Tips, Techniques & Questions.
