Recruiting – Interview Questions
Asking questions in interviews without a plan is tantamount to employing an applicant by shuffling resumes and picking one!
As I’ve said before, the interview is the golden opportunity to get to know potential employees but what you ask them and how you run the interview can give you ‘gold’ or ‘nuthin’.
This time we’ll look at what types of questions to ask.
Here are my top tips for questions:
- Ask for a self-introduction from the applicant
- Ask for examples of enjoyable work experiences
- Ask for examples of work experiences that were less enjoyable
- Ask for examples of how they handled particular situations and drill down to determine the difference between rote answers and the true experience
Remember, get help if you need it.
