Top Recruiter Interview Questions & How To Answer

Here are three top recruiter interview questions and tips on how to answer them:

Question No. 1: How was your relationship with your past managers?

How to answer: This question is designed to see how well you, as a recruiter, work with managers and how you view your relationship with them. Answer that you feel that you and your managers work as partners and together in a proactive, positive manner.

Question No. 2: How did you tell a potential candidate they didn't get the job?

How to answer: The hiring agency is looking to see how a recruiter can handle delivering rejection to a candidate and their ability to use soft skills to share that information. Answer by stating that you contacted the potential candidate to tell them the news, explained why they didn't get the job and shared tips to enhance their next job interview.

Question No. 3: What did you do when a qualified candidate rejected your job offer?

How to answer: Occasionally, a candidate will reject a recruiter's job offer. Answer that you contacted the candidate to find out why they rejected the job offer. If the rejection had a valid reason, e.g. the salary was too low, make it clear that you went to your hiring manager to help negotiate the salary the candidate was asking for.
