The Most Important Interview Question of All Time - Part 1
(NOTE - this is not the ONLY question, just the most important. Make sure you check out THE ANSWER (Part 2) post. Part 3 is for job-seekers on how to prepare for the interview.) Over the past 30+ years as a recruiter, I can confirm that at least two-thirds of my hiring manager clients weren’t very good at interviewing. Yet, over 90% thought they were. To overcome this situation, it was critical that I became a better interviewer than them, to prove with evidence that the candidate was competent and motivated to do the work required. It took about 10 years of trial and error. Here’s it is: What single project or task would you consider the most significant accomplishment in your career so far? To see why this simple question is so powerful, imagine you’re the candidate and I’ve just asked you this question. Can you give me a detailed overview of the accomplishment?
