You want to know his reputation, his ethics level, communication level, honesty, medical situation, if he always upbeat sort of a person or is it just a precedent social veneer and definitely his/her finance situation. You will not necessarily ask to find out how much he has or hasn’t but to see if he is a mishap case. That could be a trap right there if you found it after the fact.
Here are the steps:
Ask questions about education history and watch at the same time the tone of the communication, if is it upbeat, in apathy or monotonic? Is the communication is positive or is he/she looks upbeat but in fact, she is gossiping? Watch and see what is simply there in front of you, rather than following through mislead conversation.
Now how you will see what is there?
You can do it with somebody or practice it yourself: Put up something for her to look at, and have her tell you what she sees there. You can stand in from of a full room and look at people or class of students. If he tells you, “well I see that he has a lot of experience”. “Oh, can you? What do you see there?…” No guess no supposition or estimations will do.
Google the person by typing his name.
If he or she liable to accidents or illnesses.
The facts that coming out of the interview seems not to be sharp as black and white but in fact, they are.
Make sure that he will not give you “public relation” drives. You don’t need it. You need only the truth.
Ask him to give you relevant information in writing, because what is written is true.
Be a polite listener, acknowledge his/her communication and observe body gestures. If there is something that not make sense to you, odd or negative, don’t be shy, just continue to confront him/her by steering through. This is the time to pull the string. Ask until you are satisfied from all aspects. You never know what could come up out of it, and you definitely need to get it NOW and rather than later after the fact, for example, if he focuses his eyes down to the floor, it is a sign for apathy or grief. If he seems to talk to you but will look all over in different times, it is a fear. In boredom, he will avoid looking at you. In anger, he will place you as his target.
