What type of question should be ask to the interviewee? How many question do we ask? what should we include at the end of the interview ? what sort f question we should we avoid during interview.
From India, Mumbai
Questions related to his qualifications, experience and see how it suits the post/vacancy for which he may be employed
There is no specific number of questions you can ask.
The questions should be asked to draw the candidate out and see his fitness for job-qualifications, experience, behavioural aspects etc.
Perosonality oriented questions like are you married or divorced etc.
Keep in mind: "The sole purpose of the interview is to determine if you are a good fit for the company, and if it's a good fit for you"

Depending on the selection process, there are two types of interview involved, one is where the interview is the only means of assessing, so here both the knowledge of the subject and the personality traits are covered and the other is the interview following a written test where technical skills are already assessed. In such cases, as Nathrao Sir has highlighted the interview is to determine how good is the fit between the two. The type of questions to be asked varies from introductory question like background, family details, educational profile etc thereafter progress to subtle personality traits through direct/indirect questions and could include stress interview too and finally parting questions like when the candidate can join, opening available places, etc

Dear Syed,
Nathrao and KK!HR have given you some ideas as their wont. Let me raise questions, as that's my habit.
What do you do and why have you raised this question? Is this a question raised in one of the academic courses that you are undertaking? If you are working, can you recall what questions you were asked when you went for interviews?
The best way to learn is to reflect on our experience and answers the questions that we raise and then seek help to rectify any misconceptions that we may have.
I hope people do not take this as a criticism and start a debate on my approach to answering questions.

From United Kingdom
I have a philosophy while trying to answer queries.
Give ideas and thoughts.
They will serve to give a different idea to the querist.
Full problem is not disclosed in most queries and posters have to reply based on assumptions which may or may not be correct.
Asking related questions to querist is equally a good way of making him understand things in wider perspective.
Spoon feeding is not a good idea.
Dont give him fish but teach him how to fish.
