The dreaded job interview is probably up there with going to the dentist and getting a flu vaccination on most people’s list of fun things to do. After all, there’s a reason why interviewing tips tend to dominate careers sections in any number of publications We know it’s rough for the interviewee, but it isn’t all sunshine and rainbows for the interviewer either. Handling one in-depth interview after another can quickly become exhausting, and getting disappointing answers from yet another promising candidate doesn’t do wonders for morale after half a dozen people have been through your doors. It doesn’t have to be like this.
There’s certainly a lot of effort expended in helping job-seekers ace tough questions, but there isn’t nearly enough focus on why particular questions continue to be asked in the first place. A successful interview requires as much effort from the interviewer as it does from the candidate, and as Forbes’, Lindsay Westly, once pointed out, a bad question can stop an otherwise great interview dead in its tracks. Want to make interviewing more enjoyable for both parties? Start by analyzing the questions you ask.
