Three Questions to Ask When Hiring

The interview process is the fastest and most efficient way to assess the skills and aptitude of a potential employee. This initial interaction is also essential to figuring out if the interviewee will fit with the vision, mission, and workplace culture of your business. Asking the right questions is especially important because it allows you to seek out the details about a person that may not be reflected on their resume. Here are three important questions to ask when hiring:

1. How do you think you would best contribute to this company?
-This question shows how much research the potential employee has done to assess the strengths and weaknesses of your company. Someone who has really done their research will have a genuine statement, others will scramble to give a generic answer.

2.What hobbies do you enjoy outside outside of your work?
-This question is a great way to get a great read on how this person would fit into your team. While it is important that everyone brings unique qualities to your workplace it is good that everyone has is reaching towards the same goals.

3.Where do you see yourself in five years?
-This will give you a look into the work ethic of the person being interviewed. The answer can also indicate ambition, goals, and organization skills of the potential employee.

Bonus: Don't forget to ask questions tailored to the position!
