Motivation-based Interviewing

WVU is committed to attracting, hiring, and retaining highly qualified candidates who are motivated, skilled and passionate about the work they perform. Motivation-Based Interviewing (MBI) is a simple, yet highly effective interviewing method for identifying High Performers. It assesses skill, attitude and passion of the candidate.

Supervisors are encouraged to attend MBI training, where they will learn to:

  • Understand, identify, and hire high performers
  • Assess attitude, motivation, passion and career fit
  • Determine locus of control and skill level
  • Write great MBI interview questions and scoring techniques
  • Utilize MBI tools and resources for future searches

Talent and Culture schedules MBI training sessions regularly. Watch this page for the next MBI training announcement!
