Behavioral interviews are based on the premise that past behavior is the best predictor of future behavior. This interviewing approach is designed to get information about how a candidate is likely to perform in a job role by asking the individual to describe real life examples about how they have handled previous work situations.
Asking a candidate about past job-related performance tends to yield information that is more predictive of future job-related performance than relying on more traditional, unstructured inquiry during the interview.
