When it comes to hiring effective and hard-working employees, the best interview method is undoubtedly the Behavioral-based interview format where the interviewee formulates responses to specific situations he/she has actually encountered at the workplace. The concept is that past performance is the best predictor of future performance.

This kind of interview format helps employers know what the employee can and cannot do based on assessing past work behaviors.

The SOAR method (Situation – Obstacle – Action – Result) of Behavioral-based interviews helps you to make each department at your workplace more productive and efficient by hiring the right employees for the job.

Key Features of the Conference

One study found that traditional interviewing predicted future employee success only 10% of the time but Behavioral Based Interviewing improved that rate by over 500%.
Behavioral based interviewing is a wonderful technique that aims to show that past behavior predicts your future behavior. Traditional interviewing focuses solely on hypothetical questions, but fails to analyze the candidate’s past behavior under a different employer, but under a similar job role.

On the other hand, the SOAR method works flawlessly in extracting behavioral attributes of the candidate by asking him/her situational questions that helps employers to pre-determine that candidates core competencies that fit perfectly into that particular job’s requirements.

The SOAR method works like this:

Briefly contextualizing a real life situation that you actually experienced in your past employment.

Defining the problems that came in your way while chasing a goal/target.

The specific workarounds you formulated to overcome those obstacles/opportunities.

Sharing the quantifiable and qualitative outcomes of your decisions and actions.
