.

Interviewer asks many types of question in interview. Interview questions like this give you a chance to highlight the skills- personality traits- experiences and knowledge you have that will benefit the company. Interviewers often turn to behavioral interview questions to gain an understanding of how you apply your skills and experience to specific situations.

Note – General Tips:

– You need to choose a time you influenced others on a decision which was clearly the right decision..

– Give a positive response and example that highlights your convincing power clearly.

– Your persuasion strategy should be data-driven, not opinion driven. If data is not available, use testing to gather the data. Opinions are not convincing enough!

– Use a simple, non-complex example. The focus should be on the actions your took to persuade someone who disagreed with you.

– The candidate must show that he has taken multiple steps to help make his case, communicating his proactive approach to solving problems

– Remember, Discussing the actions is very important because employers want to see how you chose to behave in the situation.

– If you’ve never had to convince somebody of something (really, you should have an example) then give an example of how you would do it.

– Remember to answer each interview question behaviorally, whether it is a behavioral question or not.
