Hey guys, my company currently tasked me with looking for a few SEO specialists to help us out with a few projects. Before embarking on this search I want to make sure we hire someone who truly knows what they are doing and is able to provide feedback and support to help achieve results.

Are there any questions I should be asking which can help me filter through applications or any red flags I should be looking out for (ex: promising first page, or quick results, etc)

You can ask for Keywords he works on and ranking of it. If ranking is good; Next you can ask for what are the activities you follows for it.
Hope this will help you..

I would ask them what tools they use to be effective in SEO and how they use them. Moz, SEMrush, Ahrefs, as well as Google Analytics and Google Search Console,  should all be fairly common vernacular to someone experienced in the SEO community.

I would also ask them to give an example of two of how they have helped a website's Google ranking and what they attribute the ranking increase to.

Just like any other aspect of life, SEO also garners quite a good amount of importance in our everyday lives owing to the digitalization of today's world. And there are many subtle aspects of this science as well like URL structure, on page optimization, off-page optimization, link building, posting and so so much more.
So, you can consider these aspects while asking the guy about seo! Hope it helps.
