How to make good questions to candidates

Interviewing candidates is not as simple as it seems.

You need to know exactly what you want to discover about the candidates being interviewed.


Here are three tips to help you on formulating questions to be made to candidates:

1. Curiosity

Don’t be afraid to be inquisitive with the candidate. Explore what the candidate expects of his position and also try to find out more about his personality.

2. Make open-ended questions

Instead of asking them questions which require direct answers, make open-ended questions which will let them show their opinion and ideas on certain matters.

3. Don’t be shallow: dig deeper

Don’t just stay on softball questions. Make the candidates really dig deep inside them to give you a response. Superficial answers are usually shallow and standard.
