John Michel's curator insight, February 10, 9:12 AM

Don't spend time asking clever interview questions; instead, spend time learning to get the answer to just this one question. Then ask it again and begin to connect the dots. After you hire a few people this way, you'll also call it the most important interview question of all time.

Dan Biles's curator insight, February 10, 9:31 AM
I have used this or a variation for years with excellent results: "Don't spend time asking clever interview questions; instead, spend time learning to get the answer to just this one question."
