Stop Asking these questions in Interviews

1. Why are you leaving your current company?

2. Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

3. Why should we hire you ?

4. What are your weaknesses?

In case you have not noticed, good people hate these questions.

Replace these questions above with:

1. Here is why you should join our company

2. Here is where we see you in 5 years

3. What else is important to you to make a decision to join us ?

If we want to hire smart people, we should stop asking stupid questions.

What happens if candidate start responding like :

“What are your weaknesses ?” – “I do not react well to stupid questions.”

“Why are you leaving your current company ?” – “Well, I am not leaving yet.”

“Why should we hire you ?” What do you expect me to say, something immodest ? Or something I looked up on the Internet yesterday ?

“Where do you see yourself in 5 years ?”

“In the mirror.” or “At a company that asks smart questions on interviews”.
