Innovation comes to job interviews

Innovation comes to job interviews

If you are tired of being answered My biggest flaw is that I am a perfectionist”, this article is for you. Times change and the skills that mattered 10 years ago are no longer so crucial, especially with digitization and the emergence of new technologies (as we tried to explain in the article Learning animals).

Also, let’s be honest, asking things like “What’s your biggest flaw?” or “Give me a reason why I should hire you?” have become the study or work” of job interviews.

We must renew the questionnaire to adapt to the requirements that matter at present, only in this way we will be able to positively surprise the most talented and demanding candidates, and we will get the information we need

Here are some proposals for you to start innovating and get to know your candidates better:

  • If you called your boss now to ask him one thing you need to do better: What would he say?

  • If you had a magic wand and could work from whatever you wanted: What job would you choose?

  • If you were reduced to the size of a pencil and fell into a blender, how would you get out?

  • You know the 1.2.3 game? You have a minute to think of different uses you would give a brick.

  • Would you be able to work with robots?

  • Tell me sometime that you’ve had to do something that you’ve never done before. How did you react? What did you learn?

  • What is a team to you?

  • What is the most important thing in a team?

  • Give me an example of when you had to work with someone of a difficult character, how did you face the situation?

  • From whom have you learned a great lesson and why?

  • What are the 3 most important things for you in a workplace?

  • Who would you like to work with again and why?

What’s the most interesting thing about you that’s not on your resume?

By the way, if you wanted more, remember to take a look at the post Virtual Reality in the world of recruiting; article in which we explain 5 cases of large organizations that are using virtual reality in recruiting with extraordinary results.
