Imagining the changing state of the world

I recently had a long interview with our internal branding team.

The theme of this year's conference was recruitment and education.

I answered the questions without thinking, but later, when I looked at the transcribed draft, I discovered that I was thinking about these things.

Since it is not yet available to the public, I will quote a brief summary.

- After our last interview, I asked not only people inside the company, but also people outside the company, "Do you have any questions you'd like to ask?" I asked. Many of them said they were interested in Mogic's internal education. So this time, we would like to focus on education and talk about it in more depth.

I'd like to get into education out of the blue, but before I do, I'm wondering what kind of hiring you do. If you have any ideas about what kind of people you would like to hire, please let me know.

Yamane: It's pretty simple. It's whether or not when you meet them, you think, "Oh, I want to work with them. I don't know, this may not sound like an answer. In a typical interview, there are a lot of requirements, such as having a high ability, wanting to have skills, wanting to be an immediate asset, having a high level of vision, and being sure to do what you are told.

But what we value is hiring people who are willing to work hard with us in a pinch at the end of the day, and also people who I would like to work with until the very end.

- What is the best way to find out when you are being interviewed?

Yamane: I guess. To be more detailed, there is a kind of compatibility between you and the person who applied for the job. Because there is no one who will absolutely be hired. We check in various ways to make sure that when we work together, this person has an atmosphere that we can work together until the end.

So, unfortunately, there is no such thing as a standardized question. If I insert the same question at different times, the meaning I receive will change, so I ask differently depending on the flow of the question.

Who you work with is a very big issue.

Even if the nature of the work does not change much, people change each other rapidly.

We cherish the time we spend meeting with them, imagining how they change.
