What is Competency?
Competency in simple terms can be described as an individual's ability to show their knowledge, skills and attributes at work. Examples of Key Competencies that the interviewer asks are: Teamwork, Responsibility, Decision making, Communication, Leadership, Commitment to career, Commercial awareness and Career motivation.
Interviewers ask questions describing a situation or task, questions can be from past experiences like 'give an example of when you have led a team?' , 'give an example of when you have overcome a problem at work?' , 'Tell me about a time when you failed to complete a task or project on time?'. Recruitment professionals believe that the best way to find out about a candidate's potential for future performance is to find out about examples of past performance. The best way to prepare for such competency questions is to refer a number of sample questions and answers or examples which help you understand the type of questions asked, understand the motive behind the question and prepare the best way you can answer for similar questions.
