Many software companies use behavioral interview techniques instead of the traditional interview. If you are a hiring manager, come find out why behavioral interviews reveal things that straightforward interviewing techniques don't. If you are a job seeker, come find out what these kinds of interviews are really looking for -- and leave with some ideas about how to ace your next interview. This talk will also briefly review the top 5 candidate Dos and Don'ts -- some of which may surprise you. If time permits, we'll even do a little role-playing.
