What is most important to you when interviewing a job candidate?


In my past retail and recruiting experiences I would conduct interviews daily. I learned that past experience is important, but also adaptability, empathy, and leadership skills go a long way in the positions. I found that if the job candidate had these skills they ended up being the most successful.

I feel like every person, company, and position has their own criteria of what would make the best candidate. What is most important to you?

I think it's a combination of being able to answer people questions - for example "what would you do in this situation?" and also technical skills. 

I also think it is important for a candidate to ask good questions, to show that they did some homework on the company.


@TammyPowlas I agree with your combination and importance of prior research. Thank you for sharing!!
