Want to Hire Great People? Stop Asking Stupid Interview Questions!

Liz Ryan

If you can make one shift in your thinking, you can hire great people whenever you want to. It isn't hard and it doesn't cost a dime.

Here's the shift:

You have to give up the idea that as a recruiter or a hiring manager, you're in charge. You have to drop the idea that you're the only person in the interview room with a decision to make.

You have to be willing to stop treating a job-seeker like a supplicant, or someone who's expected to sit in the chair and answer questions like a fourth-grader taking an oral exam. You have to stop expecting job applicants to impress you.
