Typical Probes and Follow up Questions

Anne Sandberg

Use these questions to follow-up on the prepared behavioral questions.

“Tell me more about that.”
“What led you to . . . “
“What eventually happened?”
“Looking back, what would you do differently now, if anything?”
“Compare this to what others have done.”
“What did your supervisor say / do?”
“What was the outcome?”
“What was the situation?”
“Why did you do that?”
“How did others see it?”
“What kind of feedback did you get?”
“Is this typical for you?”
“Can you think of another example of this?”
“What did you learn?”
“What did everyone else do?”
“What else can you remember about that situation?”
“Give me more detail about what you did, please.”
“What exactly did you say?”
“I’d like to hear more.”
“How did that make you feel?”
“What was the financial impact?”
