Following up on my last post, I learned a bit more about why I failed this interview process. First of all, the questions I was asked are apparently an example of Behavioral interview questions. What? Or at least that's the thought that went through my head. How does one know when an interview will be behavioral? What ever happened to, do you have the skills for this job?
It's been 6 years since I had an interview for a professional position, am I out of date? Anyhow, interviewee be warned, this is apparently not uncommon in the greater Seattle area. The libraries use these questions to determine if you can handle the job, not to assess if you're skilled enough to do it.
Here's some samples for those of you who also never heard of such a thing.
Oh, and as far as reapplying, I have to wait, 6 months.
