Every harried interviewer knows the result of throwing out vague questions to potential employees: vague answers and potentially disastrous hiring decisions. Presented in a handy question-and-answer format, 96 Great Interview Questions to Ask Before You Hire provides readers with the tools they need to elicit honest and complete information from job candidates, plus helpful hints on interpreting the responses. The book gives interviewers everything they need to:
identify high-performance job candidates • probe beyond superficial answers • spot “red flags” indicating evasions or untruths • get references to provide real information • negotiate job offers to attract winners
