The job interview of the future is already here
They suggested people’s lives would no longer be ruled by the three stages of education, work and retirement. Faced with the need to keep hobbling in to work into their 80s in an age of rising disruption, they would probably have to take a break to retrain and reinvent themselves. I like the idea they might do a very different type of job interview as well.

McKinsey’s island game was built for the firm by a US start-up called Imbellus whose 20-something founder, Rebecca Kantar, wants to drastically reshape the way we measure people’s abilities. Kantar is a Harvard dropout who thinks that in an age of rising automation, people should be tested on how they think, not just what they know, and employers need to understand the skills that define human intelligence. A lot of influential people are backing her. Forbes has just ranked her company one of the highest funded start-ups for 2019 by a founder under the age of 30.

McKinsey is right to be testing her ideas but it should not stop there. We all need to know how these theories really work in practice. – Copyright The Financial Times Limited 2018
