When you're interviewing a candidate for an open position, it's important to know how they will fit into your company.
Many interview questions are boring and repetitive. You have probably heard or been asked many of these questions before in previous interviews.
Here is a list of 16 great interview questions that really dig deep and allow you to get to know the person in front of you - as well as their motivation.
These questions help you understand if the candidate has prepared for how they will make the transition into the role, especially in terms of work style and personality.
Understanding employee motivation is so key to creating a healthy, vibrant company culture.
A candidate that fits the role you are offering will be able to provide examples that show they understand what the role needs.
Teamwork is just as important as individual work. It's key that a candidate can demonstrate how they have contributed to a team in the past and what their philosophy is about working with teams.
Learning from past mistakes (while not doing the same mistakes again) is the absolute key to success.
Self-awareness might be tough to understand when you're interviewing a candidate, so it's key to test for this right from the start.
Being open to feedback is incredibly important in the workplace. You have to be able to work with your team, listen to their suggestions and critique, and respond appropriately.
Passions drive people and help connect them to their work. It helps if a candidate is passionate about the industry they are in as it will make them more likely to succeed.
How people see the world around them affects how they make their work decisions.
The above questions will help you as a leader to understand how your candidate thinks and feels about their previous work experiences as well as the position they’re applying for.
The more insight you gain from the interview questions, the better decision you will be able to make when making a hiring decision.
Asking the right questions during an interview can mean the difference between hiring an amazing employee, or hiring someone who will not be a good fit.
