15. "yeah they mostly suck..which is why when i'm interviewing..."
In response to In response to 13


>the only interviews I was ever good in played out like
>informal conversations where i feel genuine and not like i'm
>trying to sell myself.

...i work to ensure that they feel very informal. In fact, i often share a mistake I made at work myself before asking candidates about their mistakes...i try to give of myself as much as I can.

>but really if it opens with even the simple "So tell me about
>yourself", I might as well just walk out because i'm not
>getting this job LOL
i know everyone hates that one but its actually the easiest one. you get to highlight the things you want them to know about you, just in case they don't ask. if you keep it focused on the professional parts of "who you are", its cake. Also, keep it brief. This is the question you can 100% prepare an elevator pitch response for

also, just thinking about what you said about asking about 'challenges'...i don't use that word on purpose. I ask about mistakes cuz that's concrete. you actually did a wrong thing. tells me far more about a person than whatever fake weakness they come up with "i work too hard" blah blah.


I don't speak to provoke. I speak because I think our time is short and each moment that we are not our truest selves, and we say what we do not mean because we imagine that is what somebody wants us to say, is wasting our time on this Earth - C. Adichie
