What question do you always ask a candidate, and why?
“What are you looking for in this job?”. I believe it's just as important to consider how the job fits the candidate’s needs, as it is that the candidate fits the job description. In the end, we don’t just want to find the right person for the job, we want to find the right job for the right person. If someone is a good fit and actually wants to work at a certain job, everyone is better off, and this question gives me a basic understanding of whether this is the right job for the candidate.
