In addition to general interview questions, the applicant for an administrative position may be asked behavioral questions. It is possible to prepare for behavioral interview questions partly through research to find out what the employer wants and then doing a self-inventory to determine what can best illustrate that the candidate has those attributes. It is also helpful to review likely questions and to rehearse the answers. Many behavioral questions, several of which have hints regarding the answers, are included in this article.
