  6. The First Rule Of Probing In An Interview | Manager Tools

    This guidance describes the most important things to ask further questions about during an interview.

    Most interviews are terrible.

    And, we're not talking about it from the perspective of the candidate, but rather the manager!

    Most of us really are not very good at all at interviewing.

    When you combine this weakness with what every Manager Tools manager knows - that interviewing is the most important thing managers do - well, that might just be a problem. :-)

    The question we get most frequently from managers is what questions should I ask?

    This is a fine question - and that's why we have our Interview Creation Tool.

    But it's not the best question.

    The best question is how do I evaluate their answers?

    Most of us do this poorly.

    Part of that happens because candidates are terrible at answering our questions.

    And, most of us don't probe enough as they're answering.

    One way to quickly get better at evaluating answers is to probe the decisions they make.

    But how?
