Are you about to fill the vacancies in your company and you are the recruiter who should find the professionals qualifying your need? Here are the top 10 questions you, as a recruiter, should ask the job candidates.
1. Ask the candidate what he/she knows about your company and why they want to work for your company
Even though any information can be easily accessed online today, not all candidates always do such a thing. Even, some candidates might now know the types of your company engages in. Asking this kind of interview question you will quickly find the candidate is really interested in working for your company and of course who isn't.
2. Ask the candidate's skills & strength they can bring to the position they are applying
Asking this question can help you understand whether the applicant blindly applies to the position you are offering and let you know whether he/she considers the qualification you are requiring. This question should make the interviewee think of the abilities that will benefit your company.
3. Ask the applicant to tell you about his/her current job
This question is a great option to understand the skill of communication while looking into the individual's background which goes beyond their resume.
4. Ask the applicant what does the current company he/she is working do to be more successful.
This type of interview question is to provide you a sense of big-picture about the organization the applicant is working now. It is also to reveal the reason they are eager to leave the job.
5. Ask the interviewee the time when they disagree with their employer or colleagues and how to handle such a situation
This question is to understand how the applicant's ability to solve the conflict they had and to dig deeply their personality as well as the potential for overcoming future problems.
6. Ask the applicant whether they can work in a team or alone
This type of question will help you to determine whether the applicant is suited to the type of assignments they will receive. Some people are great at working with a team but others are best working alone.
7. Ask the candidate why they leave the current job
Asking the candidate with such questions as this: "Does your job does not provide you enough career development that made you unhappy in your current role?" But keep in mind that the candidate might have an unrealistic expectation or they leave the current job due to the reasons that might not fit for your offer.
8. Ask the application the ideal environment of work
Asking the candidate such question as this will help you figure out whether they will flourish at your organization. Your company may have a private workspace, for instance, but the candidate prefers an open-floor plan.
