(Civil Service) Interview questions - multiple example answers? Watch
With success profiles entering the scene, what do you think of multiple examples in response to the "tell me a time when..." questions that I'm sure will still appear?
For people that have a decent amount of experience in a variety of areas, it seems wasteful/risky to put all your hopes on one example. Is it "cheating" to give multiple examples in the hopes of hitting more criteria? Will only one example count?
Similar to how it's extremely hard to crunch competency examples down to 250 words in a written application, they could miss important evidence unless you have a perfect (and you know, often fabricated) one-size-fits-all answers.
Anyone had experience of a success profiles interview?
Basically, you need to show confidence in what you specifically did and what the results where in that situation so always say 'I'. They are only interested in you and they don't know your team so never say 'we' and always always say 'as a result of....'.
