Mitchell Harper gives his seven questions for hiring the best available talent, and it’s a pretty good list. He admits himself it’s only a start.

This Is How You Identify A-Players (In About 10 Minutes) During An Interview
I have to admit that I still like the “what is your biggest weakness” question. It tells me if a candidate is actually going to be honest with me or not. I think a better way to ask it would be “what would your last boss say was your biggest weakness?” You can see the steam come out of their ears sometimes….
Regardless, Jeff Haden definitely has the right idea in proffering alternatives to horrible interview questions.
