Ask Good Questions

For most positions, there is an initial phone-screening interview with a representative from human resources. Use this phone screening to ask important job-requirement questions. When you ask questions about the requirements, rather than simply answering questions, you appear motivated and professional. Typically, you’ll impress the screener, who plays an important role in the hiring decision. The next three sections provide lists of suggested questions.

Position Qualifications Questions

  • What are three or four “must-have” qualifications a person should possess to be selected for this position?

  • In addition to the “must haves” for this position, what are some other qualifications that are important to have?

  • What criteria will you use to make your hiring decision?

  • What personal qualities will it take to get this job done?

  • What skill sets are required to be successful in this position?

  • What are the most important personal characteristics for a person in this position?
