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 you with the tools you need to elicit honest and complete information from job candidates, plus helpful hints on interpreting the responses. This book gives you everything you need to:


select the most qualified of your potential new hires • move beyond cursory responses to discover the real person you're interviewing • uncover evasive or false information • use the reference process to get a more complete picture • negotiate effectively to win over a great new member of your organization


Updated and expanded, the book includes 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 helps you uncover the real person behind every job candidate.




“Customized, pinpoint interviewing questions for practically every hiring scenario, with examples and real-life applications. This catalog of dynamic questions and questioning techniques from the pros’ perspective will help you land prized candidates by walking you through the interviewing, reference-checking, and offer stages of the hiring process.”

—Vic Faraci, Senior Vice President, Warner Brothers Records
