- While not exactly a downright horrible question, it shares some of the same problems as the previous example: its just too vague and generic to inspire an interesting answer from the candidate.
- Asking a candidate this question is akin to asking a high schooler what they want to be when they grow up: you might get a decent answer, but chances are, the person is not likely to be 100% sure.
- While asking this question might reveal character flaws, youre still unlikely to receive an honest answer as to why a candidate was let go from a previous employer.
- Additionally, this question may inspire the candidate to speak negatively about a previous employer, which can bring about unwanted awkwardness and hostility during the interview.
- However, this doesnt mean that there isnt room for general questions designed to gauge a candidates workplace fitness; but this does mean that all questions asked should inspire the candidate to provide you with unique and honest answers.

- Social media recruiting is increasingly making use of big data to help companies find talent and identify the best job candidates for open positions.
- The combination of big data and social media for recruiting, put simply, works.
- There is no one specific formula for combining big data and social media recruiting to magically produce highly qualified job candidates, but there are some commonalities.
- Human expertise is the third necessary factor in addition to big data and social media platforms in successful social media recruiting.
- Combined with social media recruiting expertise, big data allows social recruiting specialists to make more accurate, evidence-based selections more quickly, and this can confer a very real competitive advantage for hiring companies, particularly as competition for top talent heats up.

- This week on #WorkTrends, were talking to Tim Sackett about ways to improve talent acquisition.
- Sackett says thats the one question he really tries to force every head of HR or talent acquisition to ask their executive team.
- While thats a worst-case scenario, Sackett says the goal of every company should be to let hiring managers own their own team, and own their own talent.
- Complaining about staffing is seen as saying, You need to replace me, Im no good at my job, because thats their No. 1 job, Sackett says.
- But Sackett says that when he talks to TA leaders, they dont want to let these non-recruiters go because theyre great people.
