Is this the best interview question ever?
“Tell me about the first experience in your life when you realised that you had the power of change or the power to do something meaningful.”
Simon Anderson, CEO of Dreamhost says he asks this question to discover what motivates candidates.
“I think there’s this big shift under way in business where you have to respect the fact that people are going to forge their own path, and they’re going to be motivated by different things and they’re going to want to do meaningful things,” he says. “So in our business, finding people who are equally motivated and believe in that is really important.”
