Types of Interviews

Behavioral Interviews

Behavioral interviews are the most common type of interview you will encounter. They require you to talk about how you have handled specific types of issues in the past. They include specific questions such as: "Talk about a time when you worked as part of a team and there was conflict between the team members," or "Describe a time when you had to put in extra hours to complete a project or assignment."

Case Interviews

Case interviews are used by consulting companies and other firms to assess your problem-solving abilities. Interviewers in these situations will observe your thought process, test your ability to think logically and organize your answer, and assess your confidence and communication skills under pressure. Getting the “right” answer is not nearly as important as the thought process you go through.

Technical Interviews

Technical interviews require candidates to demonstrate a particular skill set or knowledge that relates to the job, such as writing code for a computer programming position. They are commonly used for positions in science, technology, or engineering. You may be asked to solve puzzles or problems, complete a coding challnege, or answer specific targeted questions.

Virtual Interviewing

As you begin your internship and job search, you may notice that an increasing number of organizations are choosing to adopt video enabled interviews as part of their recruitment process. There are two types of virtual interviewing used in today's industries—live video and pre-recorded video. While there is some overlap, each one is unique and therefore will require different forms of preparation. We have compiled some tips for each for you to review.
