Many of our clients have never interviewed online before , and just like our candidates , are new to this way of interacting – we’re all experts on Zoom now and most of us have even partied on Zoom, but holding an interview for a potential remote member of the team – now that’s a whole other ball game.
It goes without saying that you will need to chat about the skills, competencies and experience of the individual, but what about their fit as a remote team player?
Here are 20 questions to ask in a Remote Interview that will help you determine whether your interviewee is predisposed to remote or part remote working…
- How do you structure your day when you work remotely?
- Rate your tech savvy-ness from 1 to 10
- How did you find working during Covid-19?

- How do you schedule your day? Calendars? Project Management tools do you use?
- Would you describe yourself as self motivated – give us some examples?
