One Key Question

When you are going for an interview, even better, before you go for a meeting, you are considering a job opportunity that you feel will be a great progression for you, or at least a limp in the right direction! One key question you should ask you headhunter or the HR person and/or the person¬†interviewing you actually, everyone associated with the role. They all have perspectives, knowledge and biases that you need to be aware of upfront. The one thing you need to have answered and that will allow you to bail from the process before it got going or to ask the right follow up questions as the process continues, that one thing you need to be clear about is, ‘what makes the person coming in to this role a success within a year of starting.’ If you know this you know whether is a great progression for you or not.
