While there has been some shift in negotiating power in recent months from job seekers to employers, you still need to stay ahead of the curve when hiring new talent. So as you prepare to interview your short list of candidates, be sure you use that time wisely and ask the questions that will be most effective as you make your final hiring decision.

Start with some basic inquiries to get to know each candidate and start a comfortable flow of conversation. From there, dig deeper by moving on to more behavioral and role-specific questions.

Basic Questions

More than just basic ice breakers, questions like these will help you gauge whether a candidate’s vision aligns with yours:

Behavioral Questions

Behavioral questions help you get a read on a person’s ability to think on their feet, problem solve, collaborate, and fulfil other soft skill needs.

Role-Specific Questions

Last but not least, zero in on aa candidate’s understanding of a position and all it entails, as well as their overall interest level.

Before you ask the right questions, you need the right candidates. PrideStaff Fresno can help with both. Partner with us to land leading temporary, temp-to-hire and direct talent in areas including administration, customer service, IT, accounting and finance, legal support, healthcare and more.
