I also have a favorite interview question (courtesy of David Delaney). I always ask it, regardless of the rank or role of the position I'm trying to fill:
Of course, an interview isn't made of one question. Here are some highlights from the list of questions that I've collected from a number of sources (including Corner Office and Bud LaRosa):
- What do you know about our organization?
- How would you describe yourself in one word?
- If you had to pick between a "set-it-and-forget it" environment and a "over-the-shoulder" environment, which would you pick? Follow Up: How would you deal with an environment that is the opposite of the one you picked?
- Each person at Tocci works with their manager to develop and implement an Individual Development Plan. What skills, qualities, or capabilities do you want to improve as part of your IDP?
I'm always looking to add to my list of questions. So tell me, what questions do you use to interview VDC positions? Or any positions?
