Wanting to Avoid Responsibilities

Job InterviewInterview Question: What kinds of responsibilities would you like to avoid in your next role?

Provided we have not communicated significant details about the position being sought, we can expect to secure some very valuable information by introducing this question. Candidates are often motivated in their job search by the goal of getting away from certain aspects of their present job. While we typically spend a good deal of time asking about things candidates love to do and are good at doing, inquiring in this fashion about the areas that repel them will serve as a valuable information gathering effort.
