    I like this guy. He reminds me a little of Brian Tracy.

    Just a thought. In the UK Civil Service you are expected to have more than 1 example for a behavioural competency, so I would say to look specifically at what the job specification asks. What skills are desirable and what are necessary and practice your answers in 150 words.

    Mr.Krueger Could you please consider doing a series of videos specifically for individuals like me who are only just entering the job market? As someone just starting out, how can I make a positive impression on an interviewer despite a lack in experience and or a thin resume?

    I just had an interview and I was so nervous that I shot myself in the foot.. I kept fumbling my words, I sounded like a moron.. UGH!! I’m so mad… Guess I need more practice.

    No BSing–a good interviewer will drill down and then you’ll be dead. Or, worse yet, you BS your way into a job where you have to keep up the BS to keep the job. Both options are bad ones.

    We all have examples and stories, some are better than others. The key is to use the ones that are the most compelling examples given the competency the interviewer is reviewing.

    My only issue with behavioral interviews is that I cannot seem to find examples. I have nothing should I just bs a little bit?

    Don’t skirt the question and certainly don’t make something up. Answer with an example that is the closest to what they are seeking. Try to look for ways to broaden your examples to be more inclusive to a wider number of questions.

    How do you give specific examples of things if you don’t have a lot of experience? The questions that get me in interviews are the ones where they ask “give me an example of when you did ____ in the workplace.” Because I don’t have a lot of experience in the workplace, I usually don’t have an example because I’ve never experienced that. Do I tell them that I haven’t ever done that? Make something up? Skirt the question?

    Employers know that you are nervous. So it is OK. Just rehearse what you are going to say and you should be fine. If you don’t get the job, there is always another opportunity somewhere out there. Good luck everybody.

    I messed up ar my interview. I tried to relax but I couldn’t do it. I wish I could stop time whenever I’m asked a question, that way I have time to reply without going blank… )’:

    when the interview comes up, don’t keep going over it in your head while waiting in the lobby or waiting area.
    I have don’t this 100 times, and I found it only makes it harder, instead just think about something else that is peaceful to keep you from getting hyper and nervous, and when it is your turn you should have an easier time with any questions that you are asked.

    I have found that the best way to be prepared is try not to get too prepared, if you think too much about what you want to say you may have a harder time when that interview comes up.
    what I found to help me is to prepare for a interview by going over a mock interview with a friend do it a few times till you feel good about it, and don’t do it just a few times in 1 day do it maybe 3-5 times a day for a week or more.

    Last week I had the worst interview of my Life.
    I was answering Questions without thinking. I knew i was the right man for the JOB, but i forgot that the only person that knew that was ME, and I comepleately faild.
    I just wanted to end the Interview. It started bad, it ended bad, it was bad all the way, I was totally surprised.
    7 hrs from now i have another interview with another company, better company.
    I am ready to FIRE…
    Watching these Videos helped. Thank You.
