HR Questionnaire Examples

June 14, 2011

A human resource questionnaire is used before a person seeking employment in an organization can be short listed for an interview. The questionnaire is designed to gauge the applicant’s attitudes, temperament, skills and personality traits.  The questionnaire is usually a mixture of open ended and close-ended questions since the employer intends to get as much background information about the applicant as possible. Most such questionnaires contain a section where a person provides his/her identification or introductory details, and a different section where one summarizes his/her knowledge in relation to the job he/she is seeking. The questions are usually free of biases and ambiguities.
