Success at a competency-based interview is all about the detail of the examples you use to answer those competency-based questions. As an interviewer, I am looking for evidence of where you demonstrated that competency. Make sure your example clearly focuses on the required competency. Make sure you stick to the details in your competency example that demonstrate the required competency. I notice candidates sometimes get their competencies mixed up, so it's worth spending some time getting to know the competencies and their definitions, if made available to you. I also notice that my interview coaching clients end up emphasising all the details of the work they did while losing focus on demonstrating the competency. So that means you need to edit how you talk about that work and consider what parts of it clearly demonstrate the competency and focus on those parts in your answer.⠀
My interview tips are based on my years of interviewing experience and my years of interview coaching. I hold qualifications in HR and Business Psychology.
