Campus recruitment practices and processes have been mostly stagnant for many years. But now the economy has changed and the competition is high. In terms of campus recruitment, many other crucial factors have been changing for such fresh graduating talents and also how recruiters look while hiring. They have a different set of requirements and plans. It is the time for colleges to be up to the task.
University placement leaders are now modernising their existing recruiting methods. In order to guarantee that we successfully hire the most-in-demand fresh graduates, we must add a couple of brand new bold best practices.
It is estimated that 80% of the interview is made up of behavioural questions. This type of interviewing is based on the philosophy that a detailed analysis of the way one act in certain circumstances will give reliable indication of the way he/she will act in the new job.
Behavioural question will be experience-based and you need a lot of practice to be able to answer them in a satisfactory manner.
To answer Behavioural Questions, employ the STAR technique –
· S = Situation − (recall an incident in your life that suits the situation)
· T = Task − (recall an incident in your life that suits the task)
· A = Action − (mention the course of action you opted to address the situation or task)
· R = Result − (mention the result of your action and the outcome)
