Is your candidate an adaptable learner?

Start with this question: What motivates you and what do you want to do next?

Then ask:

  • What have you started?
  • How would you describe yourself in your own words?
  • How would a colleague describe you in three adjectives?
  • What current trends are you seeing in your profession?
  • What new things have you tried recently?

The last two questions will indicate that he is determined to learn something new.

Bust Bureaucracy Before It Starts

  • Let them shine first. Let the candidate share a project they are proud of to have a sense of what excites them.
  • Then make them uncomfortable. Ask them about experiences or times when they were somehow out of control. 
  • Calibrate your results on how the interview went objectively, not subjectively.
  • Watch out for signs of coaching if a person start quoting things from articles or something from your company.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
