Interviewing

THE INTERVIEW

interview

Liberal Arts Career Services provides several resources to assist students with future interviews. Students may schedule an appointment with a Career Coach for either a behavioral or case study mock interview. We also encourage students to utilize interview training software available in OptimalResume, which you may access through your BTT Gateway account.

The two types of interviews employers most often conduct with candidates are either behavioral or case study. To prepare for your mock interview or next employer interview, we recommend reviewing the behavioral interview and case study preparation strategies. In addition, sample interview questions are also available for review.

INTERVIEW TYPES & PREPARATION STRATEGIES

Behavioral Interviews

A behavioral interview is a structured interview conducted either by an individual or panel of interviewers, prompting candidates to describe a past experience or situation, demonstrating how s/he handled the situation.

Case Study Interviews

Case study interviews require candidates to solve a case problem utilizing analytical, problem solving, and communication skills.  Case study interviews are common with consulting firms.
