Hello, I have an interview for HR assistant next week and they said it be a behavioral type of interview. What should I expect during the interview? How should I be prepared? What kind of questions should I be prepared for?

Google it! There’s a ton of questions examples you can use to practice.


A behavioral interview will b whr u will be asked to provide specific examples to showcase your behavior given a particular situation. This is a structured interview and no right or wrong answers. The interviewer is looking whether your values resonate with the values at the org
My suggestion would be use the STAR method. Be prepared for follow-up questions.
Be brief and draft an impactful story.
Take your time
Write down the question
Best of luck!!


When possible — expand on the STAR method, making it STARLA — situation, task, action, result… add what you LEARNED, and how you’re able to APPLY that learning in situations since


You’ll probably have to share specific examples of times when you used certain skills. Example - Tell me about a time when you were confronted by an angry employee and how you handled it.


Watch youtube behavioral interviews for tips

Hi There,

Actually i am in process of interviewing for SDE 1 at Amazon,
Cleared OA, Technical Round 1, Technical Round 2 as well & only thing left is Bar Raiser Round.

It is actually pending for more than 2 months, when asked the recruiter about the reason of not being able to schedule the round? They said due to bandwidth issue!
Recently they did scheduled the BR round but panelist didn't join,
and now it is again went for scheduling!

What should i do so i get the round scheduled for me?


Hey everyone please consider this as my Hail Mary.
My notice period got over a month ago.
I resigned from the service based company i was working in because at the time I had an offer. They later mentioned that the offer is contingent on the fact that I get an early release from the 90 days NP, which didn't happen and they ghosted me.
I feel utterly helpless. I have been applying and getting shortlisted almost everywhere but nothing has panned out.

I have completed and submitted my PDM and BGV on 5th October. Following then my candidature is on 'interview' stage on IBM career portal.

Now after 60 days HR mailed me that my candidature is on "Business Withhold",They will get back when it's resolved.

Is there still any hope or it is just a false explanation before they will permanently close my candidature.

When and IF to follow up after final interviews.
I had a final interview with a company this past Monday, sent my thank you email within the 24 hour mark. When is it acceptable to send a follow up email on next steps?

This company I am interviewing with is not proposing a base salary and an OTE. They are asking me to create it and I really need guidance here. It’s an AE role in medical SaaS sales for orthopedics surgery. What do I need to ask? So far I know that they cover medical insurance, there is no 401k, and there are private company stock options. It’s mainly inside sales with maybe 10% travel.

My thought was 75k base and 110k OTE. But they are saying to lower the base and increase OTE.

Have others found it hard to transition from Audit to Financial Analyst? All the recruiters I’m meeting with are telling me I probably won’t get an interview since they’re looking for someone who’s ready to hit the ground running.
It’s discouraging because I’m a fast learner, and from talking to my friends who are Financial Analysts, it doesn’t seem like what we do is so dissimilar.


I interviewed for a job a month ago. A few weeks after the interview, I was told my feedback was good, but the company was evaluating all positions at the company at this time. Today, I saw the job is no longer posted, but my application is still "active" in the workday system. Anyone have any idea what this would mean? I don't want to continuously bother the recruiter.


10 years in audit and ready to get out. I’m feeling really unsure about applying to non-PA positions because PA is all I know. Anyone have any good stories to help motivate me? Tia!
