Competency-based interviews are intended to determine a project manager's skill level. This article discusses techniques that can help a project manager prepare for the "situational" questions rather than questions relating to career history. The article provides two competencies as examples--one that covers technical project management and one that covers behavioral aspects. Example responses are provided for each example. Furthermore, giving a presentation during an interview is becoming more common, and this article includes hints for this type of interview. It identifies two categories for presentation briefs: scenario-based and document-based. The article includes suggestions for slide creation as well.
