Throughout my career in recruitment, I’ve often wished I had a resource with a collection of really good behavioral interview questions. When I was preparing for interviews with candidates for my own organization, a resource to expand my repertoire of questions that would help identify the skills I needed. And when working with a hiring manager who didn’t have HR experience, a tool to help us collaboratively develop a slate of challenging and relevant questions for assessing candidates.
I was never able to find a resource like that … so, I made one. You can find it on Amazon, in both paperback and e-book formats.
Whether you’re a seasoned Human Resources professional, an agency recruiter, or a hiring manager without specialized HR training or experience, you’ll find this book to be an indispensable resource in interviewing and assessing candidates.
Inside, you’ll find over 450 unique interview questions (455, to be precise). The questions are organized into categories and subcategories to make it quick and easy to find questions most relevant to the positions you’re recruiting for. Strategic and planning capabilities, change and innovation, communication skills, interpersonal skills and emotional intelligence, team orientation, leadership and management, and more. You’ll also find helpful tips for what to listen for in candidates’ answers, and a final section with over 20 follow-up and probing questions when you need them to share a bit more information.
Past performance is the best indicator of future performance. Add these creative questions to your repertoire of interview questions today, and draw out the information that will help you identify and hire the best candidates for any position.
