7 Questions Great Candidates Ask

Kazim Ladimeji | April 18, 2013 | Posted on LinkedIn

At the end of the interview when you, the interviewer, ask the candidate, “Do you have any questions for us?” it’s often hard to know what to expect. Will the candidate ask a couple of superficial questions just to be polite, or will he or she ask deep, probing questions?

If a candidate appears to be simply going through the motions at this point, this is often a sign of a candidate who is not fully engaged with your brand and the hiring process. On the other hand, a candidate who probes and asks questions of substance is a more engaged candidate. The person is trying to form a picture of your business to see if it is the right cultural fit, job fit, technical fit and career fit for him or her. This more discerning approach is likely to be taken by the best candidates. But, what questions are these more engaged candidates likely to ask and how should you respond?

Click here to read about the out seven interview questions that great candidates might ask and given some suggested responses.

Congratulations to our MBA May Graduates

Xavier’s part-time MBA program has continued to receive accolades from publications such as U.S. News & World Report, Bloomberg Businessweek and The Princeton Review. These rankings directly compliment our MBA students. It was achieved by the accurate student information provided regarding employment and salary status.

Obtaining accurate information on you and your fellow MBA graduates is critical to the success of our program. We need your help in this endeavor. That is why I am asking for a few moments of your time to complete the following employment/salary survey, with the goal of additional national recognition in publications such as The Wall Street Journal. The survey should take less than 15 minutes of your time and will make it possible for us to get started on our journey for the most widely recognized and respected MBA degree in the region. A return envelope is included for your convenience.

Please note that your responses are strictly confidential and will be reported in “group form” only; you will never be individually identified on any report. The final results are shared with department chairs, university administrators and are frequently requested by accreditation entities, college publications and even employers.

Your success is our success. Our ranking is a tribute to you. If you would like to complete the electronic version of this survey please use this link: http://www.zoomerang.com/Survey/WEB22GBLE74YT7.

Xavier University Offers Summer Housing for Interns

Each summer, hundreds of students who have summer internships in the Cincinnati area call Xavier University home. If your organization sponsors summer interns who will need a great place to stay for the summer, consider this:

Xavier offers a variety of housing options at a variety of price points. Intern housing is available May 12th to August 10th in fully furnished, air conditioned and modern apartments that include free Wi-Fi, cable television and parking. Also, interns have the opportunity to meet and network with hundreds of other interns from schools around the country. Plus each intern will be provided with complementary web-based tools from BlackbookHR, a Cincinnati startup and partner of Xavier University. These will help interns connect with one another and Cincinnati to be able to feel more connected to the city in which they will be interning.

We can arrange housing directly with your organization’s intern coordinator, or you can opt to have your interns register and pay for housing themselves.

Let us help your organization by providing your interns with a great housing experience to compliment a great working experience in Cincinnati.
