96 Great Interview Questions is a classic bestseller in the interviewing and hiring space that’s withstood the test of time. The new content on evaluating freelancers and remote workers is spot-on in terms of hiring just-in-time and virtual talent.”—Tony Lee, Vice President, Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM)

“As the CEO of one of the world’s iconic brands, I recognize the value that people selection and onboarding bring to the creation of a strong values-driven culture. This book is a handy guide and a guiding hand that will help you navigate through the process of selection and onboarding. It will help you build your interviewing muscle and strengthen your talent-development skills.”—Garry Ridge CEO, WD-40 Company and coauthor (with Ken Blanchard) of Helping People Win at Work

“A classic for anyone that touches the hiring and selection process: hiring managers, HR professionals, contingency and retained recruiters, and yes — even candidates looking for greater insight into the employer’s field manual. 96 Great Interview Questions has been a bestseller for two decades for good reason, and this third edition incorporates so many of today’s newest challenges and opportunities in the hiring space.”—Phil Blair, Executive Officer, Manpower of San Diego

Hiring doesn’t have to be a risky proposition. With the right questions and selection strategies, you can put the right person in the job—every time.

Whether interviewing entry-level college grads, mid-level managers, salespeople, technical candidates, or senior executives, 96 Great Interview Questions to Ask Before You Hire uncovers the answers you need: How would interviewees handle challenging situations? How likely are they to accept your offer and stay? Are they a good cultural fit for your organization?

Employment expert Paul Falcone helps you look beyond resumes and canned responses with questions that target personality and talents, including: achievement-anchored questions, questions that gauge likability, pressure-cooker questions, holistic questions that invite self-assessment, questions about career stability and patterns of progression, final-round questions, and more.

Guidelines on screening candidates, interviewing strategically, analyzing responses, checking references, evaluating remote and gig workers, making offers, and onboarding employees both eliminate hiring headaches and strengthen your reputation as an effective leader.

Paul Falcone is an HR executive who has held senior-level positions with Paramount Pictures, Nickelodeon, and City of Hope. A long-time contributor to HR Magazine, he is the author of many bestselling books, including 2600 Phrases for Effective Performance Reviews.
