There are a number of questions that an interviewer can ask potential employees, but the key remains to find questions that best help gauge a candidate’s suitability for a position. In general, start-up employees require a separate set of qualities that set them apart from their peers due to the relatively small size of early-stage companies. This individual will likely have to take on a number of responsibilities that correspond to employees in a larger organization with greater levels of experience, a circumstance requiring a high-degree of maturity and dedication. How can interviewers size-up candidates in the space of a single interview? What personal qualities predict a successful future relationship for the candidate and the company?

If you are an entrepreneur or early stage company, looking to build your critical core team of talented people, find out how to interview them at the next events in Beijing and Shanghai. Both events will be held in English.
