  1. Why Are You Here? – That’s a deep question and I would hold that one back for higher level positions. Many entry level positions are “just jobs” and it seems a bit unfair to ask such a question. Does that make sense?

      I see what you’re trying to point out. That’s because if you try to push the question, you’ll most likely get a dishonest answer. And if you do get an honest answer, you will not really like to hear it. It is not fair.

      I think Why Are You Here can be a good question at all levels.

  2. You stated “While unemployment is the lowest in 5 years”
    That is false!
    The numbers are skewed by the gov.
    If the actual job count published by the same gov. in 2008 are now less, like 9+million less jobs, that also means there are over 9 million still unemployed. We are not even close to having rosy employment numbers. There is incredible talent out there just working any job to get an income. You want to go find that talent, not wait for it to come to your business. With sales down, the best talent is what we must have in order to beat the competition. As employers we must make more of an effort to have the most talented employees, and keep them or our businesses will suffer. Then all we will be doing is buying ourselves a job, not building our business and creating good jobs.

  3. Asking questions is one way to get to know the applicant. But it’s also just one aspect of the job interview process. In order to have a better picture of what the applicant can do for the company, I think presenting situational scenarios is one way. How will they respond if this and that happen? Of course, the situation should be in relation to the job. I like how it brings in the element of surprise. This can compliment the questions you mentioned above.
