This is the only thing to do to hire the right person during a job interview

How do you hire the right person in a job interview? The main goal of CEOs and company management when interviewing candidates is to be able to identify and hire the right person for the job in question. We have all come across vacancies for which we are asked to go through all the requirements before applying. Sometimes we can find the job description quite easy, but when it comes to the qualification requirement, we sigh desperately.

Elon Musk doesn’t do this. We all know Who Elon Musk is. He is one of the multibillionaires of our time. Elon Musk is a business tycoon, industrial architect, and engineer. South African-born American businessman who co-founded PayPal. He was the N01 richest man in the world just recently and is the founder, CEO, CTO, and chief designer of SpaceX; CEO, and designer of Tesla, Inc.; founder of The Boring Company; co-founder of Neuralink; and co-founder and co-chairman of OpenAI.

Elon Musk was once interviewing a man for the software engineering role. This man actually worked on a poultry farm and had no qualifications to support him even in computer science or software engineering. Surprisingly, his work as a poultry farmer caught Elon's attention.

Throughout the interview, Elon, full of curiosity, asked nothing of the man related to IT or software engineering but only about his experience working on a poultry farm. He was really curious about what it was like to work on a poultry farm, even though the information was of no particular use to him. He concluded that if a person in front of you is curious enough to learn new things, it is the surest sign of their intelligence.

Management and recruiters need to follow the same pattern if they are to get the cream of the crop. They should not talk about work during interviews. The point is that the interviews have become something else. Interviews are completely rehearsed and employers risk employing the actors who have learned the interview skills best.

The application must already cover the skills and qualifications. Remember that the first 5 seconds of your first impression according to social psychologists are never wrong. Once you talk to them about general things, they lift their guard.

So ask them to describe what they feel when walking in the industry and observe if they are bored, excited, alert… and if they ask questions. You should also ask them to describe the most exciting thing they worked on when they were in school or at a previous job. Rather, look for creativity, personality, and attitude, and in doing so, you'll recruit a good candidate for the job.
