41 HR Officer Questions and Answers:

1 :: Tell us what strategies would you employ to ensure the recruiting process goes smoothly?

At first, I would analyze what strategies the organization already has in place and determine how successful they have been in the past. Then, based on this success, I would incorporate these strategies with a new plan that capitalizes on targeting the right job market. For example, if the organization has been recruiting strictly out of college campuses, I would continue to use this process, but enhance it by using tools that college-aged employees would be attracted to, such as social media.

There is no right answer to this question, only wrong ones. You don’t need to make book out of this answer, just something short and positive is best. After all, it really does not matter to the interviewer, as long as you don’t say something foolish.

The point here is to convey to the interviewer that you are not leaving because you are mad, tired, bored, overworked, underpaid, or job hopping, just that you are leaving your job on because.

“I do enjoy working at my current job. The culture and the people make it a great place to work. But I’m looking for more responsibility with new and fresh challenges. I have worked on and successfully completed several projects, from start to finish during the past two years. Currently, advancement opportunities are scarce at my current job.
