The latest addition to the killer interview questions collection focuses on motivation: Would you want this job if it was in Dubbo?.
Michael Heyward, founder of secret-sharing app Whisper, uses this question to identify how keen potential staff are to work for him:
If Whisper was based in Ohio, would you still want to work here?
For Australian purposes, Dubbo is a good equivalent — it’s a perfectly serviceable city, but very few people have a burning ambition to move there.
While the obvious answer is “yes”, that question should also raise a red flag. Do you really want to work for a company that expects to routinely disrupt your entire life?
