Transcript of 37signals podcast "Episode #25: Hiring" now available

Here’s an excerpt where Jason advocates asking general questions during interviews: “One of the good things is just to ask, ‘What did you do yesterday?’ And just kind of see how they explain that. Do they explain it in a very sort of concise manner — like ‘I got to work at 9am and I did this.’ Or did they sort of talk about the problems they solve? Or about the people they interacted with? The more general the question, and the less leading it is, I think the better you can just let someone talk and you sort of see how they describe things. And from that you can discern what they consider to be important and what they don’t.” You can also listen to the episode.
