An Interview Question That Changed Everything




Job interviews—and the positions that flow from them—are all about critical thinking and creative problem-solving. Arthur C. Clarke shared an anecdote from an interview that forever shaped his thinking. He related:


“You are driving in your car on a stormy day. You pass by a bus stop and see three people waiting there. The first is the perfect woman of your dreams. The second is an old friend who once saved your life. The third is a lonely old lady who looks really sick. If you only had one seat in your car, who would you offer a ride to?”


Think about your response and then watch the video to see the applicant’s winning response.
