Interview Icebreaker

Looking to switch things up in your next interview? Try asking:

After one year in this role, what impact will you have made?

Why it works: This question reveals three key insights into your candidate.

  1. Role comprehension. This helps you to determine what expectations the candidate has about the role, and offers an opportunity to help clarify any misunderstandings to ensure a good fit.

  2. Results or process focus. Does the candidate describe their impact in numbers/metrics? Or are they more focused on other aspects?

  3. Timeline expectations. This helps to reveal the candidate’s perspective of how long they believe projects should take at your company.
