10 questions to ask when interviewing candidates for IT positions

Finding the best person for an IT position requires more than just matching up skills with job requirements. These questions will help you determine how well a candidate can really meet your needs. Hiring IT staff is a difficult task, and too many IT leaders leave it solely in the hands of HR. Here are 10 questions you can ask potential IT hires -- and an explanation of what each question can tell you about the candidate. Useful to hirers and candidates.

1: What are two or three major trends affecting the IT industry and how do you see them affecting the profession?

2: Tell me about a time you were asked to perform a task or project you didn't understand

3: Tell me about a time you were asked to do something you've never done before (new technology, different type of project, new industry, etc.)

4: Do you get bored easily?

5: What types of activities would you expect and prefer this role to entail?

6: Where do you want your career to go and what skills would you like to learn and develop as our employee?

7: If you could make two or three changes at your former place of employment, what would they be?

8: Ask a case question

9: Ask a "tough employee" question

10: Ask about a hobby or interest (if it's mentioned on their résumé)
