A poorly placed candidate can harm your client relationships and even your firm's reputation. That’s why you need to screen candidates carefully for potential.

For example, 89% of new hires fail due to cultural fit. The good news is that behavioral interview questions are a proven way to reveal important soft skills, such as cultural fit.

We surveyed nearly 1,300 hiring managers to get the top questions they use to screen for:  

  • Adaptability
  • Culture add
  • Collaboration
  • Leadership
  • Potential for growth
  • Prioritization
