Why Should I Hire You?


Has an interviewer asked you, “Why should I hire you?

No one has ever asked me that question. I’ve been asked about my favorite color (red), my biggest mistake at work (not showing enough humility earlier in my career), and my GPA from high school (I don’t remember). I was asked to name my personal hero (I don’t have one), describe my recruiting philosophy (“fast”), and to share the best experience I had when living in London (eating Indian food for the first time).

No one has dared to ask me why they should hire me. I don’t suffer fools gladly, and I don’t need your job — or any job — badly enough to play that kind of game.

Neither do you, Suckers. Don’t put up with that nonsense.
