This comes up a lot - and I have a POV on this. This is hard to do - but I have coached colleagues over the years to do the following when they told me that they had a "top job" in mind regardless of whether the company was hiring or not.  1.

Red flags I look for are around tenur in a closing role -  The biggest thing I am trying to interview for/hire for is an understanding or even basic personal philosophy on how the candidate drices a process.  If I see short stints at sales gigs - I don't immediately DQ as this could mean cu......Read More

This is hard to place in a 60 minute interview, let alone the proverbial 30-min call, it thats all you get.  But a simple trick I like to use is to frame up questions that get at the bottom of following three things - 1.
