The boss: What is it in you that makes you suitable for the job?
The candidate: Honesty and integrity.
The boss: But I think honesty and integrity are lost traditions in today’s world.
The candidate: That’s what you think but I dont think the same.
Here, selection or rejection is a 50-50 game, but the candidate has shown that he will stand for what he thinks is right.
Any potential boss will go with Warren Buffet, Chairman and CEO of Berkshire Hathaway, who said it the best: “While hiring people, look for three qualities: integrity, intelligence, and energy and if they don’t have the first one, the other two will kill you.”
