Overview

Updated and expanded, a practical collection of probing interview questions designed to uncover the truth behind every job candidate.

Every harried interviewer knows the result of throwing out vague questions to potential employees: vague answers and potentially disastrous hiring decisions. Presented in a handy question-and-answer format, 96 Great Interview Questions to Ask Before You Hire provides readers with the tools they need to elicit honest and complete information from job candidates, plus helpful hints on interpreting the responses. The book gives interviewers everything they need to:

identify high-performance job candidates • probe beyond superficial answers • spot “red flags” indicating evasions or untruths • get references to provide real information • negotiate job offers to attract winners

Included in this revised and updated edition are new material on background checks, specific challenges posed by the up-and-coming millennial generation, and ideas for reinventing the employment application to gather more in-depth information than ever before. Packed with insightful questions, this book serves as a ready reference for both managers and human resources professionals alike.
