Want to hire the right people, ask the right questions. I’m Brian Banmiller on Business.

The interview process is when you can determine if the person you are considering will be a good fit with the company and help it thrive. According to Forbes this starts by giving the candidate a challenge with interview questions. We all know the obvious ones, what is your worst quality, name a time when you met and overcame a challenge. But why not dig a little deeper? Recently, the CEO of an accelerated-learning company shared the ten best questions to find the right person. And she knows what she’s talking about because she’s helped with hiring needs of some of the country’s biggest companies. For example, ask “How would you define innovation?” or “Can you name someone who successfully simplified a complex business or industry?” to see how they would fit in with the culture ask something like “What’s an example of a disruptive question that you’ve asked in the workplace?” For more questions and the answers to look for go to Banmiller on It never hurts to ask.
