My Houston job postings get lots of low-quality applicants. Any tips?

Start by sending each applicant an email asking them to answer five questions. The questions should take at least 20 minutes to answer, and require the level of job knowledge you seek to be answered well.

Low-quality candidates won't bother responding at all. The answers you receive will be easy to compare, and you'll be able to tell who put in time and effort to answer the questions right away. These are the motivated candidates you want to focus on in your hiring process.
