A situational interview utilizes hypothetical events
in the form of a question. Candidates are asked how
they would react if they encountered that event. This
type of interview is most often used with college graduates
who do not have as much past work experience.
The type of questions that typify the situational
interview are generally scenarios in which you are
asked what you would do if confronted by a specific
situation. Some people are prepared for these questions,
and will generally ask the interviewer if these questions
relate to real events at the organization.
