Posting an online job application attracts all kinds of people. Some are qualified, others aren’t and a few stand out as ideal candidates. Including screening questions on your online applications is an excellent way to streamline the sourcing stage and discover the candidates who should be interviewed. This checklist will help you:
Include questions that identify qualified candidates
Simple "yes" or "no" questions can be used to filter out candidates who don't meet the job requirements.
Come up with questions that highlight stand out candidates
Open-ended questions are great for learning how each applicant would approach the job if hired.
Learn what questions to avoid
Some questions don't offer any value and can make for a poor applicant experience.
