Have you ever asked these questions during a job interview?
Big mistake! Questions like these can inspire creative applicants to tell you what they think you want to hear in order to try and impress you.
Another mistake is asking theoretical questions. You’ll get theoretical answers and possibly learn a lot about the prospective employee’s dreams and fantasies. Or you might learn nothing at all.
A better approach is to ask for specifics to elicit responses that tell you what the applicant has done — rather than what he or she intends to do.
