Best Interview Questions for a Video

Ask the best questions; get the best answers


During a video interview, the best questions are conversation starters. Avoid “yes” and “no” questions and instead ask about things that require more explanation and detail.

Stories make any interview more interesting; hearing someone tell a story is the best way to really hear their voice and see from their perspective.

To elicit stories, try these question starters during your next video interview:

  • Tell me more about…
  • What were you doing when…
  • How did you feel about…

If you're looking for fresh interview questions, do some research into your subject's life. You may get inspired and find new topics and events to talk about during the interview.

Finally, remember to relax and enjoy yourself. This will help your subject relax and open up during the interview.
