If this article is accurate (and there's no real reason to think it isn't) then it speaks against the idea of career preparation based simply on competencies. The things these interview tactics are testing for won't be developed or evaluated in competency-based training - they're trying to see whether people are ready foir the job at any moment, whether they can cope with distractions or with conflict, whether they can manage conflicting priorities, and similar 'soft' (very soft) skills. Via Doug Belshaw.

Update. Doug Belshaw reports that this post was satire. So I should have listened to the original doubt I felt when I wrote "If this article is accurate (and there's no real reason to think it isn't)...." Sadly, I didn't, and as a result, passed satire along as fact.
