Vernon Gunnarson on CEO Jeff Bezos’ three interview questions.
It’s been over 15 years since Bezos wrote about these hiring goals, but given Amazon’s success, his advice is certainly worth considering. So, if you’re interested in growing your team, first get a grip on your company culture and embed it into your hiring process. Then it’s ultimately about finding a way to keep hiring standards high in whatever way resonates with your hiring managers.
The three questions:
- Will you admire this person?
- Will this person raise the average level of effectiveness of the group they’re entering?
- Along what dimensions might this person be a superstar?
Sounds like something Steve Jobs would do.
