Evaluating the Entry-Level Candidate

Start by asking the right questions.

Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own.

Encourage entry-level candidates to discuss their experiences in school or share an accomplishment that has significant personal meaning. These accomplishments can come from school, volunteer work, internship programs and part- or full-time jobs. Probe entry-level candidates with questions to see if they are motivated and enthusiastic about learning on the job.
