Comment on Effective Interview Questions by Julie @ Millennial Boss.
You’ve put together a great list of questions! I’ve personally hired 15 people and have been on the hiring committee for about 20 positions in the last few years. I typically ask “Can you give me an example of when you took initiative to do something that needed to be done but you were not asked to do it?” I also ask recent graduates a brain teaser. I’m not expecting the right answer, I just want to see that they think the problems through logically, stay collected under pressure, and can provide a polished response since that was important for the role. Anyone who “gives up” right away without trying doesn’t make the cut.

Set Specific Goals – Aim Small, Miss Small
I’ve always wanted to learn golf. I’ve been to the driving range but I get so frustrated. Not quite Happy Gilmore level frustrated but still it’s tough for me. Maybe I’ll take a golf lesson (or watch it on TV). Thanks for the inspiration!
