Amazon is doing a bunch of hiring here in the bay area and I can tell you what Amazon founder Jeff Bezos asks himself when he's doing the hiring which I think are great hints about how to best present yourself in any job interview. Here are three questions Jeff Bezos asks himself about every new hire:
- Will he admire this person? When you go into a job interview, put your best foot forward. Show them YES you are a person to admire
- Will this person raise the level of effectiveness of the department they'll be in? Show yourself to be a team player, a motivator, and a leader.
- What area might this person be a superstar? This is a great question. You might be really conscientious or caring or an excellent problem solver. In a job interview don't be afraid to let them know where you shine the most.
