The best way to probe

Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4

When you’re interviewing a job candidate or weighing whether to promote someone, encourage them to analyze the past. Get them to open up by starting your questions with “Tell me about … ,” “What is your experience with … ?” and “What was it like to … ?” Phrase your questions neutrally. Example: Replace “Was that job as much fun as it sounds?” with “How did you like that job?”
