There are only three key job interview questions – Forbes

According to Forbes Magazine:

  1. Can you do the job?
  2. Will you love the job?
  3. Can we tolerate working with you?

That’s great news! So let us skip interviews and send a questionnaire with these three questions to every candidate and safe time and resources.

To be honest, not the invention of the wheel either – they just put the three core dimensions of evaluation (ability, motivation, cultural fit) in a flashy headline. So it’s still more than just three questions and you shouldn’t rely on the candidate to answer perfectly self-reflected and honest. Recruiters exhale 🙂

Oh, nonetheless, it never hurts to read some words of wisdom from senior recruiting professionals and there are some useful links in the article.
