Determining Candidate Uniqueness
What makes you a more unique, more desirable candidate than the other 100 that have applied?
Our role as interviewer is to assess the candidates before us and make a selection. Why not ask the candidate for some direct assistance? While many questions we advocate to be asked during the interviewing process are strategically worded and in many ways require a thoughtful response, this one deals with the candidate head on. Asking the candidate to differentiate themselves from others, helping you to hone in and probe on the aspects they identify as unique, will result in more solid insights.
