Competency Based Interview




Conducting a job interview is the most used recruitment method to evaluate the suitability of a candidate for a specific function. However too often we trust our first impression and our evaluation is influenced in a positive or in a negative way.

The Competency Based Interview enables you to assess the different skills of a candidate that are necessary to perform well in a certain function.

Thanks to this technique you can considerably raise the validity of your recruitment process.


  • Increase the validity of a job interview

  • Learn the structured interview method based on competencies in order to adopt a more solid and objective approach

  • Enable you to provide a richer feedback to line managers by highlighting concrete examples of situations in which the candidate performed well or had difficulties


  • HR Officers
  • Managers involved in recruitment and selection processes
