I am going to interview an entry level candidate. What kind of questions should I ask? He will be working in Java technology and the job doesn't need heavy coding. Apart from technical question, what type of questions should I ask the candidate? His job involves talking to to customer apart from little coding.
I think except the tecnology,some question you should ask: communication skill,but this qeestion you can't ask directly,you maybe make a easy talk with him,and observer his communication skill. teamwork,it's impormant too. and the experience he has.
As far as entry level jobs are concerned, its apt for an interviewer to dig something from the candidate's eductaional qualification. Basically, I'm mechanical engineer and at the time of my entry level interview I was grilled on few of the subjects that were undertaken at the graduation level. This way you can make out how confident is candidate with given amount of knowledge and what all new technologies he/she is aware of. Things can extrapolated on the basis of his skills at this time, means with the proper trng person can be groomed or not.
Thanks for the information Srikanth Basavaraju.I agree with you.
I have seen many people getting into SAP entry level ABAP programmer , but having 5 years of experience in Java.
So I took it like that. I think we have helped Mr. Trupti Nigam enough.
