The BCG personal fit questions try to assess qualities of candidates in terms of
- Path Finding / Creativity
Ask for the CV of your partner in order to ask questions specifically targeted at passage of his or her life. While listening to the answers, keep in mind the two major criteria you have to evaluate:
Can I work with this candidate closely in a team every day?
Can I send the candidate to a client alone?
Make sure, the candidate follows the three basic rules for personal fit questions:
- Provision of a clear roadmap: The candidate has time to think of a structured answer.
- Using distinctive answers: Examples instead of generic answers help to remember a candidate.
- Using the answer to sell him/herself: The statements should still answer the question, but in a way that the candidate conveys useful skills.
