Killer Interview Question: How Will You Judge If You Have Been Successful Here?

Killer Interview Question: How Will You Judge If You Have Been Successful Here?

This week’s KIQ comes from Google’s former senior marketing manager Heidi Zak who asks every job candidate this question.

Zak is now the manager and co-founder of online bra company ThirdLove. The company was founded in 2013 and now has over 50 staff. Curiosity is what she values most in an employee. To gauge a job applicant’s level of curiosity, Zak would ask this question:

One year from now, if you’re part of the team at ThirdLove, how will you judge if [your time here] has been a success?

Like many of the KIQs we’ve featured, there isn’t really a set answer to this question but the ideal answer would include something along the lines of: “It’s all about learning new things and about growing professionally.”

How would you tackle this question? Let us know in the comments.
