Airbus shakes up top management amid legal woes

first_imgPARIS – Airbus said Friday that its CEO, Tom Enders, will step down in 2019, as the European airplane maker shakes up management amid multiple corruption investigations.The company said Enders, who will have been at the helm of Airbus and defence firm EADS for 14 years, won’t seek another term when his current term expires.Enders has been a key figure as Airbus has jockeyed with U.S. rival Boeing over the past decade to be the world’s top-selling plane maker.The 59-year-old was quoted Friday as saying Airbus needs “fresh minds for the 2020s” and that he would use the remainder of his time to ensure a smooth transition and to strengthen the company’s ethics and compliance programs.The governments of France and Germany, which have stakes in Airbus and used to have seats on its board, are paying close attention to the management changes and the legal probes.“We obviously need to keep an eye on our strategic interests and (Airbus) governance, which must be exemplary,” French President Emmanuel Macron told reporters in Brussels on Friday.Speaking alongside German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Macron insisted that their governments won’t “interfere politically to return to a role in the daily management of the company” — but said he wants the Airbus board to provide clarifications in the coming weeks about the executive shakeup.Also leaving is the chief operating officer and president of the commercial aircraft division, Fabrice Bregier, who will step down next February.He will be succeeded by Guillaume Faury, currently CEO of Airbus Helicopters. Enders described Faury as part of “the next generation of leaders,” which could suggest he is being groomed to eventually take over as CEO of the overall Airbus Group.The announcement came weeks after Airbus announced it is replacing its combative, long-serving sales chief, John Leahy. He’s being replaced by an outside executive, from Rolls Royce.The big challenge for incoming Airbus management will be legal investigations.Authorities in Britain and France are investigating alleged fraud and bribery related to Airbus’ use of outside consultants in commercial plane sales. Airbus has warned that the investigations could lead to “significant penalties” and promised to stop working with middlemen.Meanwhile, Austria is investigating suspected fraud in the government’s purchase of Airbus combat aircraft.It’s a bumpy time for Airbus, which recently saw a major deal with Gulf carrier Emirates for A380 superjumbos fall apart at the last minute at the Dubai Air Show. The airline handed the contract to Boeing instead.Shares were little changed Friday, as management changes were expected.Airbus had revenues of 67 billion euros ($79 billion) last year and employs 134,000 staff worldwide.last_img read more

New Bill aims to limit media ownership in Ireland

first_img 12,570 Views Image: Leah Farrell 36 Comments Jan 31st 2017, 8:35 PM By Cormac Fitzgerald Share Tweet Email2 http://jrnl.ie/3215649 Tuesday 31 Jan 2017, 8:35 PM New Bill aims to limit media ownership in Ireland The Social Democrats introduced the Media Ownership 2017 Bill today. THE SOCIAL DEMOCRATS today launched a new Bill that seeks to increase media plurality and cap ownership in Ireland.The Media Ownership Bill 2017 was brought forward in the Dáil today by Catherine Murphy.Its aim is to increase plurality as well as minimise the potential for over-concentration of media ownership with any one individual or company.Speaking in the Dáil, Murphy said the point of the Bill was to “rebalance the landscape of media plurality” in the country.Speaking ahead of the bill being launched, Murphy said an “ever-increasing proportion of our media outlets” were being concentrated in too few hands.“This represents a potential threat to a free and open media which facilitates a vigorous democracy,” she said.Murphy pointed towards international debates and issues around “fake news” as a reason to have a “pluralistic media environment”.She also pointed towards the proposed acquisition by Independent News and Media of the Celtic Media Group.INM – which prints the Irish Independent, the Sunday Independent, the Herald and a number of regional newspapers – would gain ownership of a number of other local newspapers as a result of this acquisition.The takeover was approved by the Competition and Consumer Protection Commission (CCPC) in November. It is now a subject of a review by the Communications minister.Denis O’Brien – a large shareholder in INM – is also the owner Communicorp, which runs a number of Irish radio stations.“There is currently a public interest test for media control that suggests a concentration of ownership by any one entity of more than 20% of the media is not in the public interest,” said Murphy.However, there is no transparency on who owns or controls the media.Under the Competition Act 2002 and the Competition and Consumer Protection Act 2014, the Minister for Communications has the power to establish guidelines on media mergers and oversee any media mergers or acquisitions in Ireland, to protect the public interest.This can currently only be done for new media mergers. The Media Ownership Bill will give the Minister the power to apply these guidlines retroactively.The Bill will be debated next week in the Dáil.Read: Bus Éireann Unite members vote unanimously to strikeRead: Complaints around 8th Amendment and ‘rubbishing Mass’ on Rose of Tralee rejected Image: Leah Farrell Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article Short URLlast_img read more

Progress in eurozone talks on Greece no deal yet

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Greece revealed on Wednesday that it will overshoot its deficit and debt targets again next year because of a deeper than forecast recession as eurozone finance ministers debated how to keep the near-bankrupt state afloat. Athens needs to push through spending cuts and tax measures worth 13.5 billion euros ($17.5 billion) as well as a raft of economic reforms to satisfy EU and IMF lenders and secure more bailout money next month to avoid bankruptcy. Parliament in Athens took a step forward by narrowly passing a required privatization measure, but the precariousness of the government’s majority fueled doubts about the passage of other more contentious reforms next week. After a two-hour conference call of ministers from the 17-nation Eurogroup, German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble told a news conference: “There was considerable progress.” However, another person on the call said there was no real progress because the International Monetary Fund remained at loggerheads with Germany, the EU’s biggest creditor nation, on the need for European government lenders to participate in reducing Greece’s debt burden.“There is a harsh debate between the IMF and Germany about OSI (official sector involvement),” said the participant, who spoke on condition anonymity. The IMF also opposed pressure from Berlin to make Greece put aid tranches and earmarked tax revenue into an escrow account to service its debts, and for automatic measures to kick in if its adjustment program veered off course again, the source said. Eurogroup chairman Jean-Claude Juncker said in a statement he expected a deal at the finance ministers’ face-to-face meeting on Nov. 12 provided Greek authorities had completed a list of prior actions. Schaeuble said ministers expected to receive a crucial report from the so-called “troika” of international lenders on Nov. 11 or 12, near the deadline, but insisted: “Time pressure cannot lead to irresponsible solutions.” The German minister also said there were no concrete negotiations yet with Cyprus, which has said it may struggle to pay public sector salaries in December without aid, and they would probably not start until 2013. The ministers received more bad news earlier when Athens slashed its forecast for a budget surplus before debt servicing costs next year, dimming one of its few bright spots as rounds of austerity deepen a recession already into its fifth year. The government forecast a 4.5 percent economic contraction in 2013, which will push public debt to a record 189.1 percent of gross domestic product. The primary budget surplus is forecast to be just 0.4 percent, well down on the 1.1 percent pencilled in previously. Thomas Wieser, the coordinator of euro zone finance ministers, said Greece’s lenders were not discussing at present another debt write-off, or “haircut”. EU diplomats said other ways of stretching out official loans were on the table. The options included lengthening the maturities and reducing the interest rate on existing loans, an interest payment holiday, letting Greece buy back its own debt at a discount with borrowed money and allowing it to issue more short-term T-bills. Even though IMF and EU officials say privately Greece’s debt is unsustainable and will have to be restructured, Schaeuble said that for a large majority of euro zone countries accepting a “haircut” was legally impossible. The troika is readying a debt sustainability analysis and pondering ways to plug a financing gap if Greece were to reach a primary surplus, which excludes interest payments, of 4.5 percent of GDP in 2016 rather than in 2014. The source said the ministers were told the troika reckoned that Greece would need an extra 30 billion euros ($39 billion) in funding over the two extra years. Wieser said it would be “very, very tough” for Greece to reach the original target, given the depth of its recession, a view underscored by Wednesday’s revised forecast. The latest budget figures nonetheless confirm the country is on track to achieve a primary surplus for the first time since 2002, after a 1.5 percent deficit in 2012. A deal on restarting the second bailout for Greece, stopped in June because the country was off track with reforms, hinges on the ruling coalition adopting strict labour market reforms. An overwhelming majority of Socialist lawmakers agreed on Tuesday to vote in favor of the contested reforms, party officials told Reuters, sharply increasing the likelihood of the government winning a parliamentary vote which has become its biggest test since taking power in June. After months of negotiations on the austerity plan, Prime Minister Antonis Samaras announced that talks had been completed and implored his allies to back the package, which includes scrapping automatic wage rises and cutting severance payments. The prime minister’s New Democracy party and the Socialist PASOK have between them 160 deputies, nine more than they need for an absolute majority in parliament. But the third party in the coalition, Democratic Left, refuses to back the proposed new labour laws, making next week’s vote unpredictable. The privatization measure passed by just 149 votes to 139 on Wednesday. “What would happen if the deal isn’t passed and the country is led to chaos?” Samaras said in a statement. “Such dangers must be avoided. That is the responsibility of each party and every lawmaker individually.”The government included a large chunk of the austerity measures in the 2013 budget bill presented on Wednesday, with the remaining measures and labour reforms in a separate bill to be put to parliament on Monday. Raising the pressure, Greece’s two biggest labour unions called a 48-hour strike for Nov. 6-7 to protest against the latest wave of austerity measures. Highlighting persistent trouble in meeting its targets, the country’s privatization agency said on Tuesday it had slashed its revenue target to about 11 billion euros by the end of 2016, down from a previous target of about 19 billion euros by the end of 2015. The lack of progress stems from the reluctance of Greek governments to sell off assets, political instability and the lack of investor interest in a country facing a grim economic future and the threat of an exit from the euro. Despite public anger at the unpopular austerity measures, the budget is expected to pass in parliament since all three parties in the ruling coalition have agreed to back it.

US adds 235000 jobs in February making Fed rate hike likely

first_imgWASHINGTON — U.S. employers added a robust 235,000 jobs in February and raised pay at a healthy pace, making it all but certain that the Federal Reserve will raise short-term interest rates next week.Friday’s jobs report from the government made clear that the economy remains on solid footing nearly eight years after the Great Recession ended.The unemployment rate dipped to a low 4.7 percent from 4.8 percent, the Labor Department said. More people began looking for jobs in February, a sign of confidence that raised the proportion of Americans working or seeking work to the highest level in nearly a year.The gains in hiring and pay, along with higher consumer and business confidence since the November election, could lift spending and investment in coming months and accelerate economic growth. Americans are buying homes at a solid pace, and manufacturing is rebounding, in part because of improving economies overseas.Investors responded initially by sending stock prices up sharply Friday. By late morning, though, stock indexes were up only slightly.The February jobs data likely provides the final piece of evidence the Fed needs to feel confident enough to raise rates next week for the third time in 15 months. The Fed’s inclination to tighten borrowing rates reflects how far the economy has come since the central bank cut its benchmark short-term rate to zero in 2008 and kept it there for seven years to support a fragile economy.last_img read more

Gauri Khan makes THIS shocking revelation about Shah Rukh Khan

first_imgShah Rukh Khan and Gauri Khan at the HT Most Stylish Awards 2019.YouTubeGauri Khan, the wife of the most famous Bollywood superstar in the world, Shah Rukh Khan, has made a shocking revelation about him. We all know how stylish and lovely Gauri Khan looks alongside the dapper Khan, but it seems there is more to it than meets the eye.The common belief is that ladies take more time to get dressed, what with the elaborate outfits, accessories and makeup. But in the case of Shah Rukh Khan and Gauri Khan, it is SRK who takes longer to get ready! This was revealed by Gauri Khan at the HT Most Stylish Awards 2019, held in March and to be aired on television tonight. Now, this is something we did not know about Shah Rukh Khan.SRK always seems simple yet nattily dressed. But that’s because he takes two to three hours to get ready, where Gauri takes only 20 minutes! This is what she revealed. “Every time we are stepping out, I am ready in 20 minutes but he takes 2-3 hours. Tonight (for the awards), I put in a lot of effort and took three hours and he took six,” quipped Gauri.The couple got the most stylish award at the event and were all heart when speaking to host and actor Vicky Kaushal on stage about their married life. When Vicky Kaushal mentioned that SRK and Gauri have been married for 27 years, Shah Rukh Khan joked, “Kya baat kar raha hai? (What are you talking about?) We have come (here) as a young, stylish couple.”On July 8, 2018, Shah Rukh Khan had posted a selfie on Instagram, saying, “After years the wife has allowed me to post a pic I have taken…she’s all heart!” When they were asked about this, Gauri talked about a rule for SRK that she has.”The only reason I don’t allow him to post pictures, because as I said, he takes two hours to get ready. Even in the pictures, he doesn’t care how the family is looking. So maybe, that’s the reason. I have to make sure I am looking good in the picture.”SRK asked Vicky Kaushal to please tell his family, Gauri, Aryan Khan, Suhana Khan and AbRam Khan, how good he is at taking selfies, as they made fun of him for using too many filters on Instagram. “…please tell my family. Ye sab mera mazaak udaate hain, wife, bacche, ki mai zyada filter use karta hu, ye karta hu and they don’t allow me to put any picture.”Watch the video below of SRK and Gauri at the HT Most Stylish Awards 2019.last_img read more

Cancer patient requests Ajay Devgn to not endorse tobacco products

first_imgAjay DevgnYouTube ScreenshotAjay Devgn, who is seen in advertisements of pan masala products, has been publicly requested by a cancer patient not to endorse tobacco products.A 40-year-old cancer patient from Rajasthan, Nanakram, who also apparently is a big fan of Ajay, came up with around 1,000 pamphlets in which he mentioned how he was influenced to use the same product the actor endorses and asked him not to promote tobacco products.The pamphlets were circulated across various areas in the state. Nanakram expressed regret at using such products, which he thinks caused him cancer.”My father Nanakram Meena started chewing tobacco a few years ago and was using the same brand for which Devgn does the advertisement. My father was impressed by Devgn but when he was diagnosed with cancer, he felt that such a big star should not advertise for these kinds of products,” the patient’s son told PTI.Nanakram, who reportedly cannot speak, sells milk to run his family that includes two children. Well, it will be interesting to see if Ajay pays attention to the cancer patient’s request or remains oblivious to it.On the work front, Ajay will soon be seen in romantic comedy De De Pyaar De starring Tabu and Rakul Preet Singh. The trailer of the film has received a good response and the songs have added to the hype. The film will release on May 17.last_img read more

NDTV India Hindi to be taken off air for a day due

first_imgUnion Information and Broadcasting Ministry has ordered Hindi TV news channel NDTV India to go off air for a day for allegedly revealing ‘strategically-sensitive’ details while covering the Pathankot terrorist attack.The move follows recommendations of an inter-ministerial committee and may now ask the channel to be taken off air on November 9. This is the first of its kind order against a broadcaster over its coverage of terrorist attacks.On January 2, a heavily armed group had attacked the Pathankot Air Force Station, part of the Western Air Command of the Indian Air Force.Commenting on the coverage of the attack, the committee members said that “such crucial information” could have been readily picked by terrorist handlers and had the potential to “cause massive harm not only to the national security, but also to lives of civilians and defence personnel.”The sensitive information allegedly released by the channel during the operation in January included information on the ammunition stockpiled at the Indian Air Force station, MIGs, fighter planes, rocket launchers, mortars, helicopters and fuel tanks. “It could have been used by the terrorists or their handlers to cause massive harm,” sources said.According to official sources, the channel was submitted a show cause notice after it was felt that the content aired by the broadcaster was violative of programming norms. In response, the channel said that the government used “subjective interpretation,” besides arguing that the bulk of the information was already in public domain in print, electronic and social media.In its order, however, the committee points that the channel “appeared to give out the exact location of the remaining terrorists with regard to the sensitive assets in their vicinity” when they telecast in real time.”Such crucial information could have been readily picked by their handlers, which had the potential to cause massive harm not only to the national security, but also to lives of civilians and defence personnel,” the committee said while disagreeing with the channel’s arguments, according to Times of India.NDTV was also under the scanner when it and some other channels were considered responsible for jeopardising the lives of National Security Guard commandos during the 26/11 attacks in Mumbai. In the aftermath, the Central government had decided to put certain protocols and safeguards for live coverage of security operation by media houses.last_img read more

Considering the police told the Vice crew they’re not ‘welcome’ in the small town, and Maddie didn’t even come up in the first school board meeting since the incident, it’s clear the town isn’t ready to understand trans issues.Surprisingly, the mayor of Achille is openly gay.While the mayor urged people not to hold all of Achille responsible for the actions of a few residents, this simply isn’t enough.‘The day of running someone out of town is gone,’ Mayor David Northcutt told Vice.‘But she’s leaving town now,’ the Vice reporter retorted.In the near future, the Rose family will be relocating to Houston, Texas to be near family.Got a news tip?

As a sum they are looking to spend between $300 million and $400 milliona boost over the $250 million they doled out to shape the 2016 results Unlike previous summits these donors were more sober about the political landscape In fact many of the donors refused to talk about Novembers election and instead wanted to talk about efforts to reform the criminal justice system or protect free speech on college campuses There were Trump supporters among the crowd but they werent wearing the red "Make America Great Again" hats lest they be ostracized And there are few signs that this confab of insiders will unify behind Trump any time soon especially if he moves forward on big price-tag items like tax reform or an infrastructure program In fact the Koch-organized network has largely existed solely as an opposition wing of the Republican Party It gained power in protest over George W Bushs spending and became a behemoth standing against President Obama "Our secret sauce so to speak is the accountability play" said Mark Holden a longtime Koch lieutenant The network sat out the 2016 campaign Charles Koch in particular could not find himself interested in either of his options and instead focused on the Senate races That may be the playbook for 2020 already on the horizon After all these groups have played in presidential politics only once and Mitt Romney came up short despite the tens of millions of dollars the Koch supporters pumped onto TV in phone calls and door knocks (Donors of all scales still grumble that Romney ran a horrible campaign and blame his advisers strongly)

North and North Third Street In search of more discussion about TIMEs cover staff and students can or can’t do regarding political promotion HootSuite CEO Ryan Holmes said his is: “What’s your superpower or spirit animal” “During her interview I asked my current executive assistant what was her favorite animal She told me it was a duck because ducks are calm on the surface and hustling like crazy getting things done under the surface” he told Haden “I think this was an amazing response and a perfect description for the role of an EA For the record she’s been working with us for over a year now and is amazing at her job” “What is your spiritual practice” Business Insider’s Richard Feloni reports that when Oprah Winfrey was searching for a president of her television network the Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN) “she whittled down applicants” with this question which made some people very uncomfortable she said at a presentation at the Stanford Graduate School of Business last year “One woman even burst out crying” Feloni reports Winfrey clarified that she wasn’t asking about religion she was asking candidates about their inner relationship with themselves Winfrey said she was getting at “What do you do for yourself What do you do to keep yourself centered” Feloni writes: “She asks this because she considers her ‘secret to success’ the fact that she is grounded in her own self and looks for others who are as well If we know who we are and what we want from life Winfrey believes then we can build meaningful relationships with others to make our visions reality” “What is your favorite quote” Karen Davis a senior vice president at Hasbro the toy and game giant told Business Insider that because her work is focused on giving back a big part of her job is deciding which organizations and projects Hasbro will help fund she looks for candidates with “a true sense of passion and purpose” And the quote question she told Business Insider’s Rachel Sugar helps her figure out who applicants really are and what they truly care about While there’s no “right answer” Davis said she wants candidates who have an answer “I want to see that somebody has been looking for sources of inspiration” “Can you tell me the story of your prior successes challenges and major responsibilities” Lonne Jaffe chief executive of software company Syncsort said in a New York Times interview with Adam Bryant that he always wants to see how well a job candidate can tell a story He told Business Insider that as long as we’ve had language storytelling has been a powerful communication tool “In business creating a compelling narrative is invaluable for motivating a team explaining strategic priorities in a way that’s easy for others to understand or communicating complex ideas to customers and prospects Successful senior-level leaders are good storytellers and it’s also a very useful skill early on in your career” Jaffe said he recognized the importance of storytelling early in his career while working at IBM “Storytelling is especially important in the tech industry because technology can be very complex and sometimes people find technical details to be somewhat boring” “What would you do in the event of a zombie apocalypse” This seems like a ridiculous question to ask but it’s posed to every prospective employee at Capriotti’s Sandwich Shop a national restaurant franchise Ashley Morris the company’s CEO says it’s the best way to learn how candidates react under pressure “There really is no right answer so it’s interesting to get someone’s opinion and understand how they think on their feet” Morris explained “The hope is that for us we’re going to find out who this person is on the inside and what’s really important to him what his morals really are and if he’ll fit on the cultural level” “Walk me through your résumé particularly why you changed from one job to the next” LearnVest CEO Alexa von Tobel told Adam Bryant at the New York Times that the way a candidate responds to this question reveals their thought process which “tells you a lot about someone” She said she also likes to ask about weaknesses but if the candidate doesn’t give a real honest answer she’ll rephrase the question: “What are you genuinely bad at What does your spouse or partner or the person you’re dating tell you you’re bad at Because if they haven’t told you then you shouldn’t be sitting here I can’t work with you if you don’t know what you’re bad at” “If we’re sitting here a year from now celebrating what a great 12 months it’s been for you in this role what did we achieve together” Randy Garutti the CEO of Shake Shack told writer Jeff Haden that he needs to know candidates have “done their homework truly understand our company and the role … and really want it” Garutti continued: “The candidate should have enough strategic vision to not only talk about how good the year has been but to answer with an eye towards that bigger-picture understanding of the company and why they want to be here” “What motivates you to get out of bed in the morning” In a New York Times interview with Adam Bryant Brad Jefferson CEO of Animoto a video slide show service shared his three favorite interview questions He especially loves this one about what motivates people because it helps him understand a candidate’s passions and what makes them tick “I really try to get in their head about what’s going to keep them going” Jefferson told Business Insider that it’s important to understand what motivates a person at their core because “there will always be ups and downs in any business and you want to make sure the person will be equally motivated during difficult times if not more so” He said if you “pursue something that you’re passionate about with people who motivate you then work is really fun even during the difficult times” “What would the closest person in your life say if I asked them ‘What is the one characteristic that they totally dig about you and the one that drives them insane’ “ Kat Cole president of Cinnabon told Adam Bryant in a New York Times interview that before asking questions she likes to see how job candidates interact with people in the waiting area “I’ll ask people to offer the candidate a drink to see if there’s a general gratefulness there and they’ll send me notes” she said “Then when someone walks into my office I’ll have a big wad of paper on my floor between the door and the table I want to see if the person picks it up I don’t make huge judgments around it but it does give me a sense of how detail-oriented they are” After some conversation she finally says: “Tell me about the closest person in your life who you’re comfortable talking about What would they say if I asked them ‘What is the one characteristic that they totally dig about you’” Then she’ll say: “What is the one characteristic that drives them insane and that they would love for you to do just a little bit less” “People are pretty comfortable talking about that because I’ve pinpointed a person and a point of view” she told the Times “A hammer and a nail cost $110 and the hammer costs one dollar more than the nail How much does the nail cost” Jeff Zwelling the former CEO Convertro and current COO of ZipRecruiter told Business Insider that he often turns to tricky questions during job interviews to get a better sense of who the candidate is For example in the middle of the conversation he often throws in this curveball math question “Some candidates will instantly blurt out 10 cents which is obviously wrong” he said “They don’t have to get the exact right answer which is a nickel but I want to see them at least have a thought process behind it” Zwelling said he understands that math isn’t everyone’s forte but he wants them to realize that “10 cents is too easy of an answer and that if it was that easy I wouldn’t be asking it” “If you worked in a restaurant what role would you want” ThoughtSpot CEO Ajeet Singh told Business Insider that this question gives him a lot of information about job candidates “and he may be the only tech exec in Silicon Valley who’s asking it” writes Rachel Sugar Singh said it’s an incredibly useful question and not nearly as odd as it sounds “This question gets at the essence of what drives a person and what they like to do what inspires them what motivates them” he explained”I want to see if I can get some unconventional insight into what people are like when the job search constraints are removed” “If I were to say to a bunch of people who know you ‘Give me three adjectives that best describe you’ what would I hear’” Michelle Peluso CEO of Gilt Groupe told Adam Bryant of the New York Times that this question is far more telling than “What are you good at” which is a question she despises Here’s what she tells each candidate: “OK I’ve interviewed an eclectic crowd about you: the guy who delivers your food the last people you worked with the person who can’t stand you the most your best friend from high school your mother’s neighbor your kindergarten teacher your high school math teacher who loved you and your last boss” Then she asks: “If I were to say to them ‘Give me three adjectives that best describe you’ what would I hear” Peluso said if the candidate gives her three glowing adjectives she’ll remind them that the hypothetical group includes a few people who aren’t particularly fond of them “Tell me something that’s true that almost nobody agrees with you on” PayPal cofounder managing partner of the Founders Fund and president of Clarium Capital Peter Thiel always looks to hire people who aren’t afraid to speak their minds reports Business Insider’s Aaron Taube To do this he always gives job candidates and the founders of companies seeking an investment this interview prompt: “Tell me something that’s true that almost nobody agrees with you on”‘ In a 2012 interview with Forbes Thiel said the reason he loves this question is: “It sort of tests for originality of thinking and to some extent it tests for your courage in speaking up in a difficult interview context” “What was the last costume you wore” It doesn’t matter so much what they wore but why they wore it If the candidate’s reasoning matches Warby Parker’s core value of injecting “fun and quirkiness into work life and everything [they] do” they might have a real shot at getting a job there “We find that people who are able to make the job environment fun build followership more easily” the company’s cofounder and co-CEO David Gilboa told Iris Mansour at Quartz “If we hire the most technically skilled person in the world whose work style doesn’t fit here they won’t be successful” “Can you tell me about a time you ran with a project from start to finish” Jess Levin the founder and chief executive of Carats & Cake an online wedding resource that features curated content and information about vendors told Business Insider she asks this because she looks for people “who get what it means to do big things without a lot of hands” “There is no one-size-fits-all answer” she added but she always looks for an example that “communicates independent drive proactive problem solving and humility” “Can you tell me about a time when you almost gave up how you felt about that and what you did instead of giving up” Wayne Jackson chief executive of the software security firm Sonatype told the New York Times‘ Adam Bryant that in asking this question he can learn about what people do outside of work what drives them what they think about what’s important to determine whether they have “the competitiveness and the drive to get through tough problems and tough times” Another reason he loves this question: It helps him figure out if the candidate’s values and mindset are in line with his “I tend to drift toward things where the stakes are relatively high the dynamics are really complex and teamwork matters” he told Bryant And it’s important that his employees do the same “What would someone who doesn’t like you say about you” Retired General Stanley McChrystal who currently oversees the management consulting firm he founded the McChrystal Group told The 4-Hour Workweek author Tim Ferriss on his podcast that this unusual interview question “puts a person in the position of having to try to articulate what they think the perception of them by others is” The question essentially forces candidates to consider their least attractive qualities “and also muster enough courage to share them with someone who holds power over their careers”reports Business Insider’s Richard Feloni “What have you invented” Lori Senecal CEO of the MDC Partner Network told Adam Bryant of the New York Times that there are three things she looks for in every job candidate and she asks a certain set of questions to find out if they possess those traits First she says she looks for the “inventor mind-set” “I’ll say ‘What have you invented’” Senecal told Bryant “That doesn’t mean you have to have created a robot that can get a beer from a fridge It could be anything It’s to see whether they have the mindset of creating something That shows a desire to find fresh solutions” Next she wants to know whether they have the ability or desire to collaborate To figure out if they’ve got it she says: “Talk to me about one of your greatest achievements” And lastly she wants to detect passion and commitment For that she says: “Tell me about a time when you really had to stick your neck out for the greater good of the mission” This article originally appeared on Business Insider More from Business Insider: Contact us at editors@timecom 2014 13 you wake up and you have to be an adult and take
