Lead consultant at Test Partnership, Ben Schwencke, explains what are killer questions.
Killer questions are a set of specific questions that are included in application forms which have the power to terminate the whole application. These questions are either designed to reveal the attributes, skills, and qualifications that are essential to the job, or they are required by law as a prerequisite for employment. Killer questions are used to eliminate candidates who do not meet the minimum qualifications and requirements for the job, helping to streamline the selection process and save the applicant time.
For example, if a job requires a certain level of education or specific qualifications, the killer question would be to ask the candidate if they possess those qualifications. If the answer is no, the candidate would be automatically eliminated from the selection process. Similarly, if a job requires the candidate to have the right to work in the country, a killer question would be to ask the candidate if they can legally work in that country. If the answer is no, the candidate would be eliminated from the selection process. These questions are non-negotiable and are used to quickly weed out candidates who do not meet the basic requirements for the job. They are a powerful tool for employers to quickly identify the most suitable candidates for the role.
