Really??? Let's look at this shall we... . Isn't an interview a deeper in-depth inquiry of one's background? Yet when we stop and think about it these three questions are at the very core of what we are driving at when selecting a candidate for a position, right? We technically ask these questions, but we use different words or phrases in a variation of driving ultimately to these three points - Strengths, Motivation, and Fit.
Here are some excerpts from an article written by George Bradt, Contributor to Forbes who spoke with Kevin Kelly, CEO from Heidrick & Struggles:
Therefore when you are preparing for an interview, review these questions at their raw core.
Can you really do the job - what if anything is there that could keep you from performing to the standards or surpassing them if hired.
Will you love the job - I chuckle at this one because we say there are jobs we love and jobs we hate and lets face it we can truly enjoy the work we do but I am not one who believes that I love a job simply for the sake of the work. I think there is more to the level of satisfaction of the work. However the question is simple is this a job that you will truly enjoy for a long period of time or will you leave it after a year. Who can answer this question with the utmost degree of certainty? I know I couldn't but I could look at all the variables and derive an answer that would satisfy first my desire for the position and then increase the desire for the prospective employer to hire me.
Can we tolerate working with you? NO! I'm kidding, it is a very important question, think about it. Can people work with me, are there instances in my past where I was not liked or I did not mesh well with a particular team? Tough question to ask one's self.
