Here is our cheat sheet to assist you in asking the right interview questions of your legal candidates.
It takes extensive research, deliberation, and – occasionally – trial and error to come up with ideal job interview questions. Once you do, however, you will gain more insight into candidates, enabling you to make smarter hiring decisions.
Inspired by Yale Law School’s work on the subject, here is Mission Recruiting's cheat sheet to assist you in asking the right interview questions of your legal candidates.
Interest in the position
Your interview questions should be designed to determine a candidate's ability to successfully carry out the critical duties you have specified for the position. You can find fantastic opportunities and a solid fit in your next lawyer by being conscious of the right questions to ask. Be sure to ask questions that will reveal the candidates' behavioral traits as well as their soft and hard skills.
