When you do something a million times every year, it becomes second nature. We get comfortable. We use the same 3 questions to qualify. We get in a routine.

It works for now. But if you ask the candidate, which you probably haven’t, they’d tell you that you suck at interviewing.

Yeah, I said it. You suck at interviewing.

But we’re all about learning so we’re going to hook you up. We asked the man, the legend and Senior Editor in Chief, Matt Charney, to break it down from the interview process to 3 questions every interviewer must ask.

It will change how you and your team interview without locking everyone in a conference room for 3 days role-playing. Seriously.

Thanks for sharing this ebook!  Getting beneath the surface of the candidate's resume is important to making any informed hiring decision.  The 3 questions proposed are a great way to that.  I will say that I think some kind of uniform interview guide is helpful, especially when you have a lot of managers conducting interviews.  The consistency can be a good way to measure candidates and see where interviewers differ in their evaluations.  I also don't agree with the "is this person someone I want to have a beer with?" position.  While I understand the point is to access someone beyond who they appear to be on paper, I think that question comes across as "do I personally want to hang out with this person" which doesn't apply to most candidates capabilities to be a good fit for a job.
