Describe the Ideal Job

Woman During Her Job ConversationInterview Question: You’re looking online this weekend and come across what you believe is the ideal job for you. Tell me what it says in detail. 

Here’s an opportunity for the candidate you are interviewing to describe to you what they consider to be the ideal characteristics of the job they are seeking and the qualities of their next employer.

Listen carefully to their answer. Probe for as much detail as is possible to secure. Compare what they have just described to what you are offering in this role. Does it match? If what you hear is significantly different from what you offer you probably have a candidate that should not be pursued for hire.
