Most of the managers I know do not enjoy interviewing job candidates. It’s not that we don’t want you to have the job; however, it is often difficult to dig deep enough during an interview. Old school interview questions aren’t much help, and I admit that I have asked more than one candidate to “tell me more about yourself,” which is why I now find other questions to ask. I once asked a job candidate how her friends would describe her. Imagine my surprise when she replied, with aplomb, “a drama queen.” Needless to say, the person who did not answer the question this way is now ACC Docket’s managing editor: Tiffani R. Alexander.
