There are different types of interviews. Here are the types you could be facing, and a brief description.
1. Behavioral Interview
A behavioral interview is an interview where employers try to find out about your personality, your character, and your soft skills to see if you’re a good fit for the position and the company culture.
2. Technical Interview
A technical interview evaluates your technical skills related to the job, such as your computer skills or your design skills.
3. Case Interview
A case interview generally includes a business case that the interviewer or someone else from the company has worked on in real life. This business case usually involves a problem or a challenge that needs to be resolved.
4. Mock Interview
A mock interview is a preparation interview for the real one. Usually, a career services office or a recruiting agency conducts a mock interview with you so that you can get used to interviewing and become better prepared for your real interview.
5. Group Interview
A group interview is a type of interview in which you’re interviewed with a bunch of other candidates at the same time.
6. On-campus Interview
An on-campus interview is the one conducted on campus by employers. It’s only for the students of the school where the interview is taking place. For students, it’s actually more advantageous to do on-campus interviews.
7. Phone Interview
This is the type of interview conducted via a phone call (duh). Companies often use phone interviews to screen the candidates and narrow the applicant pool. Human resources personnel prefer phone interviews to gain basic information about the candidate such as his interest about the job, salary expectations, willingness to relocate if necessary, etc.
