I find that these particular
questions are important to ask because there are many things to take in to
consideration when hiring a new employee. I feel that finding out how a

Some of the limitations I see are as competition between
candidates are high some candidates have more experience with interviewing and
with their skilled knowledge are better and providing the “right” answers that
employers want to hear. As the interviewer, they must also be just as skilled
as sifting through candidates who are able to ‘breeze’ through interviews with
common answers. Being able to provide unique questions helps to keep the
candidate on their toes and not provide the usual answers to typical questions.
It is important as the interviewer to be able to break through that and
determine if a candidate is a right fit based on their presentation and
answers. Interviewers will want to be clear and concise
and at the same time sensitive to matters that are discriminatory and/or too
