Something that bothered Jobs was that many times in a job interview we seek to give our “best version.” To learn more about the interviewee, the late Apple CEO had two initial questions.

First, I asked if they would be willing to go out for a beer for a comfortable conversation, which would show whether the person is ready to join the team and have good chemistry with other people.

Then, the place they went was to a company terrace, where they could feel more relaxed and more open to genuine conversation.

Jobs was known to ask a little deeper questions, like “when was the last time you accomplished something you’re proud of?” or “what would you do on your dream vacation?” Another example of Jobs’ personality, who used to stray from formality.
