When asked what their biggest frustration was as a manager, over 30% of survey respondents said they wished they were better at hiring.
In the early stages of my career, I remember feeling that way as a manager. I was hiring a lot of people who didn’t seem to be the right fit, and it was super frustrating.
Can you relate?
That frustration pushed me to learn how to hire better. I learned that one of the key steps was knowing how to ask better questions.
Questions that let you get insight into the candidate’s depth of their skill, practices, and qualifications to the job well.
Questions that let you how they think, their strengths, weaknesses, and how they problem solve.
Questions that help you get to know the candidate, not just on paper, but as a person.
Asking those kinds of questions gives you a whole different understanding of who that person is, and if they are really qualified to do the job.
In this week’s video, I walk you through what kinds of questions to ask, and what to listen for too. I help you understand how to set up the interview to ensure you’re confident and clear if the candidate is a right fit, or not.
At the bottom of this post, is a link where you can get those questions to use the next time you’re interviewing.
