Other Types of Questions

Various other types of questions may be asked in an oral interview. The types of questions asked will depend on the nature of the qualifications assessed or the information sought. Generally, situational, behavioural-based, specific knowledge and ability questions and role play form most of the interview. An interview can contain any of the following types of questions:

Job Knowledge Questions

These questions assess knowledge that is essential to job performance and must be known prior to entering the job. These questions often deal with the technical aspects of the job or basic knowledge that is essential to learn the job. Depending on the level and requirements of the job, these questions may assess basic professional competencies or very complex managerial skills.
Example: "What are the steps involved in developing a project management plan?"

Situational Questions

Usually these questions provide you with a hypothetical job situation. You must respond by describing what you would do in a given situation.
Example: "If you were appointed manager, what would you do to build more cohesive work teams?"

Behaviourally-based Questions

Behaviourally-based interview questions rest on the premise that past behaviour is the best predictor of future behaviour. They are a valuable means of finding out whether candidates have demonstrated their qualifications in real situations.
Example: "Can you tell me about a situation in which you were responsible for planning and organizing all the staff, equipment and financial resources necessary to get a job done?"
