These legal sample interview questions will help you ask legal questions during your candidate interviews. Additionally, for each sample question, I provide guidance about what you are listening for in your candidate's response.
If you know the:
- behavioral characteristics employees who are effective in the job display (or you have developed a behavior profile from experience),
- the specific requirements of the position,
- and the qualifications of the candidate,
working from a prepared list of interview questions, you will ensure that you are selecting the most qualified candidate for the job.
Following are sample job interview questions. While a specific trait or skill is listed as the primary behavior, you will find overlap between the questions and candidate responses in the different categories.
In addition to these questions, you will want to prepare questions that explore the actual job skills and experience you have identified as essential for the position. Prioritize these skills and experiences and explore five to ten of them with the candidate. Your reference checking will also reveal the knowledge and skills of your candidates.
Feel free to use these sample job interview questions in your candidate job interviews.
