3 Ways I've Seen Really Talented People Ruin An Interview
"I’ve lost track of the number of times I’ve seen a talented person totally blow the interview. I used to try and rehabilitate those candidate’s chances, but I’m now learning just to quietly let them go, no matter how talented they are. Because if they commit these sins in an interview, they’re almost certainly going to be a bad hire. What are some telltale signs I’ve seen? Three come to mind (and none of them have to do with a resume):
"1. Be late. ...
"if you keep showing up late for things, even if it’s just a little bit, it tells me that you either have no respect for our contract, or you lack the integrity to keep it. In the end, punctuality is an integrity issue.
"2. Slouch. ...
"3. Don’t do your homework. ...
"If you do your homework, you can separate yourself from the field and be among the rare candidates. ...
"In the end, these simple mistakes are mistakes that reflect a cultural misfit: a lack of professionalism, and a general sense of entitlement. Hire people like this at your own risk."
In summary
* "hiring well has little to do with spotting talent.
* "the most expensive hire you will ever make is hiring the wrong person."

Questions I'm asking in interviews
In a fit of “open source your interview process”, I tweeted yesterday with the list of questions I’m drawing from when interviewing. A lot of people responded in the gist with amazing suggestions, and I thought I’d consolidate them here so they don’t get lost in my pile of gists.

Hachette CEO Arnaud Nourry on Ebooks as a 'Stupid Product'
As Nourry says, many efforts at “enhanced ebooks” have been cast aside as expensive experiments that most consumers haven’t warmed up to. And even today’s attempts to bring augmented reality effects into children’s books seem to remain primarily in the novelty bracket.

What the market may have been telling the industry all along was that, for some readers, “electronic” is enough. The values of the ebook for many do lie in the conveniences that are made possible by the electronic element:

Many ebooks can be stored and read on a single or multiple devices.
An ebook can be acquired in 60 seconds—no waiting for delivery, no travel to a store, no out-of-stock delays.
An ebook can glow in the dark, change its fonts size, capture quotes, and even share passages.
An ebook can provide an instantly available dictionary and other resources.
And an ebook, yes, is normally less expensive, as Nourry is pointing out, than its print counterpart.
This shouldn’t prevent publishers from developing digital approaches, as Nourry advocates for in the interview, “to see how we can nurture one another and how we can go beyond the ebook on digital.” Any format that can move through that marketplace successfully may be worth pursuing.
