Behavioural Descriptive Interviews
In a behavioural descriptive interview you will get an opportunity to demonstrate your competencies – knowledge, skills, and abilities – by giving us specific examples from your past experiences. Rather than telling us what you would do in a situation, we want to hear in detail what you have done to handle a specific situation.
At Cenovus, using this approach allows us to understand and assess how you will perform in the future based on your performance in the past. The questions asked during your interview will help us to identify your skill set. We want to ensure the competencies you possess closely match the competencies required for the position you are interviewing for.
- Tell us about an experience that best reflects your ability to manage priorities?
- Tell us about a situation where you felt you made a significant contribution to your team?
Your answers should be structured using The STAR approach:
Situation that occurred
Task you were presented with
Action that you took
Result of that action
Following this process will help you formulate great answers in a behavioural descriptive interview.
