If you find yourself in a position where you are the one doing the interviewing for new hires, it is best to have a game plan. You don’t want to be that person that asks the same cookie-cutter questions that don’t really qualify if the person is the right fit or not. The article, “3 Types of Interview Questions You Should Never Ask,” by Avery Augustine aims to help re-invent those stereotypical questions to be more effective, by outlining the types of questions that fall into that category. They are…
1. Questions you know the answer to already
2. Questions that make little sense to the job, but are ‘designed’ to gauge personality
3. Questions that wont provide you with any information, such as brain teasers
