Jobs, Learning

How do you hire?

I always ask about the thing you’re most proud of and the thing you’re least proud of, and sometimes it could be a four-part question, because they’ll give something personal and professional for each of them. I’m listening for whether they talk about their accomplishments with “I, I, I,” or what their team was able to do.

This is from an interview with Lloyd Carney, CEO of data handling company Brocade.

I’m currently in job application purgatory and often find myself wondering ‘what do these people really want to know’?  Little cues like this seem pretty useful to me.
