We recommend using behavioral based interview questions to help guide the conversation. These are open-ended questions that will help you get longer answers to questions rather than yes/no answers.

Sample Behavioral Based Interview Questions

It’s also important for you to be mindful of things you should not ask. You may only ask questions that are legal and non-discriminatory. Keep the questions related to the job duties, avoid personal questions. Some examples of things not to ask:

  • What year were you born?
  • Do you own your home or do you rent?
  • How many kids do you have?
  • Are you  married?
  • What’s your religion?
  • Do you have a disability?
  • What year did you graduate?
  • Are you pregnant? Are you planning to start a family?
