If you are recruiting or a candidate, you must prepare interviews !
It’s all about the questions asked during the interview … and the answers !
The recruiter has to find the good questions to allow a better understanding of the candidate !
The candidate must prepare answers (without lying) to the questions that will be (likely) asked !
Steven Tulman published a series of articles on that theme and in particular:
- The Single Most Important Interview Question Ever: What is the single most significant accomplishment in your career up to this point?
- The 2nd Most Important Interview Question: Please tell me why you left your last job.
But you will see when reading these articles, the most interesting thing about these questions is the other questions you can ask after these questions ! These others questions will allow you to get to know the candidate better.
And you, what’s your favourite questions to ask ?
