There's a lot of advice online for candidates going through a job interview, but much less for hiring managers. At the same time, a lot depends on the person conducting the interview, and if you don't know what to ask, the job seeker will not be able to demonstrate their best abilities.

The National News Today wrote about this issue: "The hiring process in any organization should begin with a detailed job description that not only outlines the role but also highlights the goals or reasons for the job. Such a description will give a more complete picture of the company and its culture.

In turn, experts advise making the description similar to a resume, with a length of one to three pages. This format will allow the candidate to quickly understand the essence and prepare the right questions for the interview.

As for the interview itself, it is desirable that it be structured but not too rigid and formal. Therefore, it is normal for the meeting to start with a topic that will ease the tension before you get down to the point and then to specific information about the role and the company.

What should I ask candidates?

One of the first questions you should ask during the interview is: "What do you know about our company and the role you are applying for?" This is the best way to get an idea of the candidate's level of preparation for the interview.

The next good question is: "What tools/support/training do you think you'll need to be successful in this position?"

It's quite rare for a person to meet all the requirements 100% of the time, so ideally, the more they list, the better. If the employer and the employee clearly understand what they need from each other before they start working together, this will make the adaptation process smoother and avoid unpleasant surprises in the future.

One more question to ask during the interview: "What management style do you prefer?". The answer will give you an idea of how quickly the candidate will fit into the system.

As for the question: "Where do you see yourself in three years?", this is more of a cliché that should be avoided. However, sometimes the answer to it gives an understanding of the candidate's future goals, which will certainly be useful to the employer.
