背调中面试候选人时的问题

今年,我们怀疑很多最近的员工可能会感谢他们能够在比去年的苹果派更老——更陈旧——的求职面试问题上喋喋不休(双关语)。为了避免看起来像火鸡,这里有一些问题,精明的招聘人员和招聘经理可能希望从贵公司的面试聚宝盆中删除:

“五年/十年后你会在哪里看到自己?”

现在是 2017 年!每个候选人之前都听过这个半生不熟的发霉老歌,并且可能已经记住了一个标准答案。此外,当今更年轻、流动性更强的候选人可能会在几年内看不到自己与您在一起。相反,应关注那些揭示候选人可以立即提供什么的问题。

“你最大的弱点是什么?”

你不太可能找到一个不期待这个问题的候选人,你得到的可能相当于罐头馅。很怀疑你会听到任何真正消极的东西,比如“我在 Twitter 上花太多时间工作”或“我很破坏性并且喜欢传播八卦。” 因此,考虑将其打包并询问他们在职业生涯中遇到过哪些重大障碍以及他们如何克服这些障碍。

“你的强项是什么?”

与上述关于弱点的问题类似,对于一个经过充分排练的候选人来说,这是肉汁(甚至可能是苹果派)。如果简历没有说明优势,他们是如何在招聘过程中做到这一点的?或许可以问一下,哪些具体优势可以立即应用于手头的工作。

“我们为什么要雇用你?”

“我是一个勤奋的人。” “我很适合这个职位。” “我有办法。” “咕噜咕噜咕噜咕噜!”

可能会听到一些原始答案,但是您将从更直接的问题中学到什么?相反,询问他们对您的特定公司的了解。了解他们是否完成了功课,他们是否可能比其他候选人更雄心勃勃,并且对这份工作和家公司(而不是任何工作)真诚地感兴趣。

“说说你自己”

这个常见问题引起的回应可能会比爷爷详细介绍他最近的前列腺检查时的感恩节花费更多的时间。如果你需要水管工或律师,你会问他们这个问题吗?如果您确实想问它,请事先考虑哪些答案会给您留下深刻印象。由于这是一个非常常用的问题,并且有无数现成的预设答案,因此请提前知道对于您的独特开场白来说,什么是好的答案。

“Where do you see yourself in five/ten years?”

It’s 2017! Every candidate has heard this half-baked moldy oldie before, and probably already has a stock answer memorized. Besides, today’s younger and more mobile candidates may not see themselves with you for more than a couple of years. Instead, focus on questions that reveal what the candidate can deliver immediately.

“What’s your greatest weakness?”

It’s unlikely you’ll find a candidate who doesn’t expect this question, and what you’ll get may be the equivalent of canned stuffing. It’s doubtful you’ll hear anything truly negative, such as “I spend too much time at work on Twitter” or “I’m disruptive and enjoy spreading gossip.” So consider bagging it and asking instead what significant obstacles they’ve faced in their career and how they overcame them.

“What are your strengths?”

Similar to the above question about weakness, it’s gravy (and maybe even apple pie à la mode) to a well-rehearsed candidate. If the resume didn’t illustrate strengths, how did they make it this far in the hiring process? Perhaps ask what specific strengths can be immediately applied to the job at hand.

“Why should we hire you?”

“I’m a hard worker.” “I’m a good fit for the position.” “I’ve got what it takes.” “Gobble gobble gobble!”

You may hear some original answers, but what are you going to learn that you would not have already got from more direct questions?  Instead, ask what they know about your specific company. Find out if they’ve done their homework, if they are perhaps more ambitious than other candidates, and are sincerely interested in this job and this company as opposed to just any job.

“Tell me about yourself”

This frequently-asked question invites a response that may wind up consuming more time than that Thanksgiving when Grandpa detailed his latest prostate exam. If you needed a plumber or a lawyer, would you ask them this question? If you do want to ask it, consider beforehand what answer(s) would impress you. Since it’s such a commonly-used question with myriad canned responses readily available, know in advance what a good answer would be for your unique opening.
