An HR Staff called me to do an interview.
I was puzzled. Why me?
But I was excited.
And I just said, "Yes".
The HR Staff faxed the applicant's resume together with the Interview Guidesheet. I could not do a face-to-face interview for I was located on the satellite plant. Phone interview was the only means.
I studied the resume. Carefully checked the work experiences and technical skills. He was applying for Production Supervisor.
I found the answer to my question "Why me?".
We are on the same specialized engineering. The same college where we finished the degree.
The interview started.
First, the most frequently asked questions during job interview.
Second, stringently interrogated about the work background that will be of good points parallel to what we are looking.
Third, situational questions regarding his past and present career achievements, disappointments, human-related and personal issues.
The interview lasted for 30 minutes.

What were my thoughts while I am doing the interview?
"Hire people who are better than you are, then leave them to get on with it . . . ;
Look for people who will aim for the remarkable, who will not settle for the routine."
