Interview Tip #23
When you’re in an interview, do you ever ask, “Was the last person in this role successful? Why or why not?”
When asking this question, it’s a two-fold discovery.
Knowing the story of what happened to the last person in this job is important.
First, it will help you better answer their questions. If the last person didn’t do well, you can talk about how you would do it differently. If the last person did spectacularly and got promoted, you know what you need to do to be considered successful.
Second, you may even discover a few clues that will help you determine if you want to take this job or not.
