Don't let this worry you. All you have to do is prepare!!
Yes, it can be difficult to prepare for Behavioral Interview questions because of the huge range of possible situational questions you might be asked. The best way to prepare is to arm your self with an arsenal of example stories that can be adapted to many Behavioral Questions. This brings us back to S.T.A.R. Statements.

Again, if you learn any one single thing from this guide, it should be that you need to write out and develop at least six to eight Personal S.T.A.R. statements, and know them backwards and forwards, in great detail.

Use examples from several different jobs. Also consider using examples from community service, hobbies, church group, or other areas that you think will be relevant to the job at hand. Also use examples of any special accomplishments, or awards you might have received, and try to QUANTIFY your results. Be specific about
numbers, dates, and durations!

Keep in mind that many Behavioral Interview questions are related to stressful or negative situations – you'll need to be ready with examples of negative, difficult experiences, but try to choose negative experiences that had positive outcomes.

Here's how to prepare:
1) Write down six to eight example situations from your past experience where you demonstrated desirable behaviors and skills that employers look for. What was the Situation? What Action did you take? What was the Result? Add as much detail as
possible. Edit and rewrite your examples. This is your Arsenal! Take the time to make it strong. You want to get hired, don't you?

2) Don't be bashful – think of examples that highlight your strongest skills.

3) Half of your accomplishment statements should be totally positive, such as large achievements or accomplishments. The other half should be situations that started out negatively but ended positively.

4) Have some variation in your examples. Don't take them all from just one job. Don't make them all relevant to just one theme.

5) Use fairly recent examples, if you can.

6) In the interview, listen carefully to each question. Pause, and then choose an example story. If you practice, you can learn to tailor a relatively small set of 6 to 8 examples to respond to almost any type of question. This way you successfully "package & spin" your work experience for almost any type of question!
