25Founders: What is Your Most Effective Interview Question? | NY Report.

 

Damon Gersh, Maxons Restorations Inc.

In a late stage interview, I will often frame the hiring process as one of “risk management” for both the candidate and our company. This way we acknowledge the reality and help the candidate understand that we are both assuming risks in considering an employment opportunity. I then ask, “What are the most significant risks that you would be taking by joining our team?” This question allows me to better understand and address the candidate’s specific concerns, unspoken objections, and potential obstacles to finalizing a deal to have them join our team.
