4. When deciding between two awesome candidates.

Sometimes having multiple great candidates makes things more difficult. Using better interview questions can help you get clarity. Try this question to bring out candidate differences that matter.

5. When you add a cover letter to the application.

Throwing an extra hurdle at your candidates is a double-edged sword. Too lengthy, and people won’t bother with your application. Too simplistic, and you’ll acquire an enormous pile of resumes.
